Mandisa – “Out of the Dark” ~ CD Review

*This post may contain affiliate links.*

Y’all, I am so excited about sharing this CD with you!

Since she was on American Idol, I have followed and admired Mandisa because she’s the real thing! She has shown us, through her time on American Idol, and her music, that she is in this to share Jesus Christ, but Mandisa also shows us that she is human. And, as humans, we all have stuff that makes life hard, and makes it hard for us to understand and trust just how much God really does love us. However, she also shows us that we can overcome those hard times, because God’s not finished with us yet! 

So, when I was offered the chance to preview “Out Of The Dark”, my answer was YES!!

Then, the day after I asked to be included in this CD release, Pouty asked…

Mommy, can we get Mandisa’s new song? I wish I could have that CD!
It just so happens that her birthday was May 15. So, her wish was granted!)

Happy Birthday, Precious Pouty Girl!!!! (Seriously, how’d she turn 9 years old?) 



About The Album

Story Behind The Album:
Acoustic Video for “Unfinished” :
Purchase link:

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today, but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called ‘Out Of The Dark’ because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 

You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America:

One thought on “Mandisa – “Out of the Dark” ~ CD Review

  1. Thank you for your lovely post. It always amazes me how God gives us so much and stands by so close with unconditional love in those dark times we all walk through (having read about or seen others go through, often thinking we won’t ever have to). When we do, He is always there, helping us through and showing us that He gives us the strength to keep moving forward and to help others when they stumble through the dark times. It’s a little like parenting an autistic child. God bless.
