One of American Idol season 5’s quiet success stories is Mandisa. She left the show in 9th place, but has since carved out a nice career in Christian contemporary music.
Her new album, Overcomer, was released yesterday, and she appeared on Good Morning America this morning to perform her new single “Overcomer.”
“I recorded both the song and the album to fuel faith, empower people, and remind those facing a battle, that all of the strength, power, and weapons of warfare they need is readily available to them. We are all overcomers,” Mandisa said through the M Collective.
“The album is produced by Christopher Stevens and David Garcia, and is set to be Mandisa’s most impactful release to date.”
The song has peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian Singles Chart and is No. 1 on AC Indicator.
This is Mandisa’s 3rd appearance on GMA, where she has become a personal cheerleader of sorts, for Robin Roberts, who has been fighting cancer. Mandisa struggles with weight issues, and has lost quite a bit in the years since she competed on Idol.
