“Mandisa loved Jesus and she used her unusually large platform to talk about Him at every turn,” said K-Love media director David Pierce. “His kindness was epic, his smile electric, his voice massive, but it was no match for the size of his heart.

“Mandisa had struggles and she was vulnerable enough to share that with us, which helped us talk about our own struggles,” Pierce continued. “Mandisa’s struggles are over. She is with the God she sang about now. Although we are saddened, Mandisa is home. We pray for Mandisa’s family and friends and ask you to join us.
