Mandisa Out of the Dark

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given for testing and review purposes from Propeller Consulting, LLC 



I have been a fan of Mandisa's voice ever since she was a contestant on American Idol season 5, I  especially loved when she sang Mary Mary's Shackles. It has been 4 years now since she released "Overcomer" that won her a grammy.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 
You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last week here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mandisa-opens-overcoming-depression-47020463

In this new CD titled "Out of the Dark", She takes us through what she went through and how her friends and family were her spiritual rock that did not let her stay down and lost.

This cd is full of encouragement, inspiration and hope and it really lets us into Mandisas life and the struggles she faced and how she overcame them and how we too can overcome, bounce back and be that come back kid by standing on the word of God and surrounding ourselves with positive people.

The CD contains 15 tracks with three bonus ones.

Spring Break 2017 on The Carnival Conquest

3 comments
Hello Friends😁
I know, I have been MIA so I wanted to share with you some Spring Break Vacay pics from my Carnival Conquest cruise. My hubby surprised the kids and I to an 8 day experience at sea visiting beautiful islands such as Grand Turk, The Dominican Republic, Curaçao and Aruba.
Unfortunately, it was rainy in Grand Turk so we decided not to get off the ship because we had already visited the beach there two years ago which was gorgeous. So, we stayed on board and I got to take some pics from the deck.

     Grand Turk



Then we headed to La Romana in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Everyone we encountered was friendly. We didn't do excursions but we did get a taxi who charged us a great price and took us and stayed with us while being our tour guide. His name was Alex and he drove us through a luxurious resort called Casa de Campo, a breaktaking river view of Altos de Chavon and a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village and into town where we shared a meal together at Pica Pollo.

                      La Romana

                 
                 The movies Anaconda and Rambo were filmed here at this pool as well some other films.






















                      The three important instruments used in playing the genre of Merengue Tipico.
                      The accordion, the tambora and the güira:)
                   
                      My daughter trying to play the güira:)

                      My little guy played the güira well:)

Many famous singers such as Frank Sinatra and latin artists have sung and played here at this 5,000 seat amphitheater. Jlo will be singing here next in April. I actually got recorded doing a sound check of one of my songs here. LOL all in fun and experience.


                   
                      Heres an old but beautiful and peaceful Catholic church in La Romana.

                   
                     I just loved the artwork in one of the shops it reads " Jesus is the bread of life"
                     
                      Here's Alex:) Lord bless him. He is a great tour guide.

    My sweet wire artisan bracelet with my name on it, so precious and unique.
    A man named Miguel after my father, crafted it right before my eyes.








La Romana was so beautiful! I'm so happy my kids got to experience a little bit of the Dominican Culture. I'm Puerto Rican so they are our neighbors and they definitely expressed that with a warm welcome when we arrived. 💖


Stay tuned for more pictures of our Carnival Conquest Cruise. Next Curaçao!
