Chief Media Officer David Pierce of the American Christian radio network K-Love confirmed the news in a statement.

“Mandisa loved Jesus, and she used her unusually extensive platform to talk about Him at every turn,’ said Pierce. “Her kindness was epic, her smile electric, her voice massive, but it was no match for the size of her heart.”

Mandisa released her debut album, “True Beauty,” in 2007. Her fifth studio album, Overcomer, earned her a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
