Mandisa first showcased her gift to the world on "American Idol" some years ago, coming in 9th place in the competition. Since then she has had much success. Mandisa spoke to BreatheCast about being a Christian on such a huge platform.
"Being a Christian on American Idol was difficult at times," Mandisa explained, "it's not something I'm ashamed of." The songstress said, "It was just me being me, because Jesus lives inside of me." What she did find to be most difficult was the reaction she received for being a Christian.
In the interview she also said she believes Christians are supposed to be honest and real with each other and not put up a faÃ§ade.
"I really believe that the world needs to see that the only difference between us and them is the fact that we serve a Savior that is able to bring redemption," she said, "We're all kinda just of going through this life together trying to do the best that we can."
This fall the former 'American Idol' contestant will be touring with Casting Crowns and Sidewalk Prophets for the Thrive Tour, which makes 39 stops.
Mandisa's current single is "Back to You" which hit the No. 7 spot on the national Christian Audience chart. It is the follow up to the No. 1 song "Overcomer."
