CCM Magazine wrote: Mandisa, born Mandisa Lynn Hundley, rose to prominence through her powerful voice and unwavering dedication to spreading messages of love, faith, and resilience. With chart-topping hits such as “Overcomer,” “Stronger,” and “Good Morning,” she became a household name in the realm of contemporary Christian music, earning accolades and recognition for her exceptional talent and unwavering devotion to her craft.

Praise & Worship Artist Don Moen remembered Mandisa this way, “The news of Mandisa’s passing this morning was truly a shock. Not only was she a powerhouse of a talent but she also possessed a genuinely kind spirit. We ministered together several times, she sang background vocals on my album ‘Thank You Lord’ and joined me on several tours.

“On one particular tour, notes kept appearing in everyone’s bunk on the bus or in their instrument cases. These were encouraging messages like: “You are blessed and highly favored,” or “You’re such a blessing on this tour.” Only at the end of the tour did we discover it had been Mandisa.”

Please remember to pray for her family during this difficult time.
