Singer Mandisa, ‘American Idol’ Alum, Dies at 47



Mandisa, who was on “American Idol” and won a Grammy in 2013 for her record “Overcomer,” is an important part of contemporary Christian music. The sad news is that Mandisa dies at 47 years old.

Yesterday afternoon, at her home in Nashville, Tennessee, the songwriter’s writing was found. Agents for the late artist told the Associated Press about it. “The spokesman said there was no information available so far about how exactly Malieka passed away.”

The full name of the girl was Mandisa Lynn Hundley, and she grew up singing in churches. She was born not far from Sacramento, California. Fame came after she came in ninth place on “American Idol” in 2006.

Ryan Seacrest, the host, told the singer how energetic she was as she left the stage.
After that, Mandisa released her record “True Beauty” in 2007. That same year, it was nominated for a Grammy for best pop and modern gospel record. After that, she put out five records, one of which was a Christmas CD.

The 2014 Grammy Award for Best Christian Music record went to her fifth record, “Overcomer.” Mandisa also wrote a book in 2022 called “Out of the Dark: My Journey Through the Shadows to Discover God’s Joy.” In it, she talked freely about her problems with depression, weight, and the coronavirus. She never lost hope.

The singer was recognized on Friday by the Christian music network K-Love, which said on its social media page that “Mandisa struggled, and she was vulnerable enough to share that with us, which helped us talk about our own struggles.”
