New Mandisa Album, What If We Were Real, Available Now!
Two-time Grammy nominee and former American Idol finalist Mandisa releases her third studio album today (April 5). What If We Were Real features eleven new songs including the heart-stirring “Lifeline,” early listener favorite “Good Morning” (with TobyMac), and the hit first single “Stronger.” Check out this performance and behind the scenes footage of “Stronger” premiering today on Godtube.
What If We Were Real is already gathering critical acclaim. Quoted from The Washington Times online, “Every track on the album is jam-packed with catchy melodies, rich vocals, deep lyrics, and powerful emotion. There are no so-called filler tracks; What If We Were Real is simply a collection of non-stop, hit-worthy and profoundly meaningful songs that are uplifting, danceable, and radiate joy. Those who enjoy the legendary voices of Whitney Houston, Point of Grace, Alicia Keys and Yolanda Adams will appreciate Mandisa’s all new album, What If We Were Real.”
USA Today’s “Idol Chatter” comments, “Five years after American Idol, Mandisa is almost unrecognizable. It’s not just because she has lost 100 pounds since finishing ninth during the show’s fifth season, it’s also because her ‘Journey to 100,’ as she likes to call it, has so thoroughly permeated her life that it has also transformed the message in her music.” Read USA Today’s full interview here, as well as their track-by-track review of What If We Were Real.
