Following her GRAMMY® winning album Overcomer (2013),
Mandisa's fifth studio album Out Of The Dark has returned Mandisa
to the top of charts, earning the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Christian &
Gospel Chart and Top 20 on Billboard Albums Chart. Out Of The Dark
has found Mandisa visiting the west coast this week, making stops at
Entertainment Tonight, TBN's PRAISE and Hallmark Channel's Home &
Family where her interview performance will air on both June 1 and June 2

Morning America in late April, Mandisa also performed "Unfinished"
alongside "I'm Still Here."

recently weathered a dark depression… And through all the hardships,
the singer has channeled her pain into her new album

may very well help others who find themselves in similarly shadowy places."
