Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Mandisa is inviting longtime friends, fellow artists Blanca and Jasmine Murray, along with author and speaker Candace Payne, a.k.a. "Chewbacca Mom," for "Girls Night Live," an evening aimed at strengthening female community. Sponsored by Food for the Hungry, the evening is envisioned to be a night of women encouraging women about matters that affect women and will include music, humor, worship, and prayer.
Noted for her vulnerability, the night will end with Mandisa and her friends joining the audience for a personal, encouraging "Girl Chat," and time of ministry. Her desire is that each night will be different than the night before and that with the special "Girl Chat" the audience will have the opportunity to shape the conversation.
"My friends and I hope to create a safe atmosphere where the ladies will feel comfortable getting real, and discussing the topics that affect us as women, and the timely challenges we face," Mandisa explains.
Visiting 16 cities, the tour will be held at churches, arenas and theaters throughout Sept. and Oct. in places like Texas, New York, Missouri, Florida, and more. Food for the Hungry will offer women an opportunity to help other women around the world by taking part in their work of providing life-changing resources such as clean water, medical aid, food, equal educational opportunities to girls and boys, vocational training and empowerment in the midst of unimaginable hardships.
