OFFICIAL CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN:
ARTIST OF THE DAY
Mandisa was a fan favorite on Season 5 of American Idol, going to the final rounds despite dealing with some harsh words from the judges about her weight. She has discussed at length in her book Idol Eyes: My New Perspective on Faith, Fat & Fame, that those hurtful words cut deeply, causing a lot of immediate pain and embarrassment.
Mandisa has seen tremendous success on Christian radio. She brings the funk, the pop, and some flavor! And she cut out a lot of flavor too. In her diet. Mandisa has lost over 75 pounds in between freshman and sophomore albums!
Sales: Mandisa's album Freedom was the first female debut to hit No. 1 in the 27-year history of Billboard’s Christian Retail Chart.
Christmas Album: It's Christmas
