Police Rule Out Foul Play in Death of Christian Singer Mandisa

“I have never met an artist who is more encouraging and supportive to other artists than Mandisa,” TobyMac wrote. “She was honest and authentic but I always left her side feeling better. She watched every act, every night on every tour singing along with a smile that made you feel alive.”

“She was honest about her struggles and viewed her breakthroughs as an opportunity to let others know that they can experience victories just like her,” TobyMac continued. “She saw us as a family. God’s family. In all our diversity. All flawed. And all in need of the love of a Good Father, a Heavenly Father.”

He added, “I know her battle is over but I will always treasure her memory and that smile and infectious laugh that I had the pleasure of experiencing.”

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Jennifer Hudson wrote, “Broke my heart when I heard the news! She was truly a woman of faith. A bright light that made such a powerful imprint on this world. Rest in heaven, Mandisa!”

“Heartbroken over the loss of this beautiful soul,” said Steven Curtis Chapman. “Her voice, her heart, her joy will be missed by us all this side of Heaven…and so thankful for the living hope that she sang (& now sings in the presence of Jesus) so powerfully about…it’s all true! Mandisa, we’ll see you in a little while.”

“I have never known a more beautiful woman in every possible way than Mandisa. Our only consolation in this terrible loss is having gotten the privilege to serve with her so many times and love her deeply,” wrote Beth Moore. “We will love you forever, Mandisa. And see you soon.”

“Mandisa loved Jesus, and she used her unusually extensive platform to talk about Him at every turn. Her kindness was epic, her smile electric, her voice massive, but it was no match for the size of her heart,” said David Pierce, chief media officer for K-LOVE. “Mandisa struggled, and she was vulnerable enough to share that with us, which helped us talk about our own struggles. Mandisa’s struggles are over, she is with the God she sang about now.”
