I am so incredibly saddened to hear about the loss of my friend Mandisa. I will always cherish the memories of times we spent together hosting award shows, going on tour, and most of all helping her tell her story in the songwriting room. The first song she released after appearing on American Idol was a song we wrote called “Only the World” and the lyrics hit different right now…

Heaven is a place

Where the tears on every face will be wiped away

Oh and I can’t wait to go

But for now, it’s enough to know

This is only temporary

This is only

Yes it’s only the world I’m living in

It’s only today I’ve been given

There ain’t no way I’m giving in

‘Cause it’s only the world

I know the best is still yet to come

‘Cause even when my days in the world are done

There’s gonna be so much more than only the world for me

Devastated to hear about the sudden loss of Mandisa. Not only did we connect over being American Idol alumni—we had a great time on the road doing several tours together. Her joy was infectious & I loved her heart to encourage people on & off stage! When I made my debut in Christian music she was my greatest supporter. It wasn’t easy coming off my first failed record deal after the show but she was the one who welcomed me first and loudest and rallied everyone to support me. Mandisa you left too soon—our community will never be the same without you.

Mandisa is the sweetest, kindest soul that @anniedixon__ and I have met on the road. After hearing she went to be with the Jesus last night I was reflecting this morning on the times we had together. Remembering we shared a bus on @tobymac hits deep tour, where I would sing her song “Good Morning” to her every single morning 😂😂😂. Or the time I wore a shirt with her face on it to sing with her on stage.
But what I remember most was her kindness and ministering spirit into both Annie and I. She sent me this voice memo a few years back and it seemed right to share.  @mandisaofficialyou will be missed, but I know it’s only for a short while, cuz it’s see you again not goodbye
