Mandisa Out of the Dark – music review

Mandisa Out of the Dark

Giveaway – Mandisa’s Out of the Dark

The last we heard from Mandisa, she was singing Overcomer, a tribute to her friend and former backup singer, Lakisha.  After finding out that she and her husband were going to have a second child, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Mandisa was confident that God would heal Lakisha.  God DID heal her but not in the way Mandisa had hoped.  After losing her friend, Mandisa slipped headlong into depression…

Fast forward nearly three years to today.  Mandisa just finished her latest album.  Out of the Dark (deluxe edition) is available beginning today.  There are 18 tracks and 4 amazing collaborations with Kirk Franklin, TobyMac, Britt Nicole, and Jeremy Camp.  You’ll also find Matthew West, Hollyn, and Ryan Stevenson’s names in the credits of the liner notes.

The gravity of where Mandisa was living after Lakisha died is in track 1 – Voicemail Intro.  I’m not even going to give it away.  Let’s just say that her friends are desperate to contact her.

I’ve been listening to the first release on the album, “Unfinished”.  Mandisa tells the story about Lakisha’s death and her own depression.  She shares how she was encouraging to her listeners but then she admits that things changed for her even though she knows that God is good.

Out of the Dark is a pouring out of Mandisa’s heart and soul.  She shares a variety of emotions.  I love that she’s shared some recordings of stories to introduce a song.  They’re brief but powerful.  You’ll listen and be blessed as much as I was.  I listened three times in a row!

Here’s the story behind Out of the Dark in her own words

  1. I have loved Mandisa for so long… her book was truly inspiring and I can’t wait to listen to this CD of another chapter in her life. My two daughters also love some Mandisa – we jam out to her music in the car all the time! One of the best days ever was when she retweeted a video of my baby girl singing Overcomer. 🙂


  2. Love Love Loooove so many Christian songs..& singers of them! lol But Mandisa is a Treasure…even my lil Grangirlie loves to sing with her (thru the radio songs…lol)


  3. Thank you for sharing this! Overcomer was one of my battle songs when I first started my relationship with God. Now I’m going through trials and Mandisa gives me more hope as we are truly always I finished in God’s eyes well in the flesh.
