Quote From Mandisa
“My faith certainly went through some tests of fire, but it’s stronger because of that and it’s also made me want to know more about it and how to articulate it. I think I came out of that whole experience (American Idol) understanding Jesus better. I’d been a little sheltered in Christian circles for a while and it helped me realize the kind of impact that Christians can make when they actually step out of their boxes and get involved in the world around them.”
Mandisa Before American Idol
Born and raised in Citrus Heights, California, Mandisa grew up singing in the church.
