Mandisa Have I Mentioned I Love Her?


Sometimes an artist just feels like an old friend. You know the type, you feel like you could sit and talk for hours about nothing. I think Mandisa is that type of artist. As beautiful and talented as she is, she still seems real or maybe better said approachable. This woman and her music make me want to love Jesus a little more. She never ceases to encourage me to have an attitude of worship. Love that about her. Plus...the girl can just flat out sing.

So imagine my surprise this week when I opened my in-box to find an e-mail from some of her people asking if I would be interested in hosting a listening party. Are you kidding?!?! On top of that...they want to give TWO of YOU an autographed copy of her new CD, FREEDOM.

Oh boy I'm so excited!!!! I got to hear "My Deliverer" on Thursday evening and I LOVE IT!!!! So here is the deal.

Do you see that little box to your right? Well...turn that volume UP and start listening to this fabulous new music. I'm telling you, you're going to love it.

Once you listen:

1. LEAVE ME A COMMENT with your favorite song or if you're like me and you can't decide...tell me which song seems to minister to you right now. Or just tell me how beautiful you think Mandisa is...:)

2. If you have a blog, mention this give away and if you know how, link back to this post. (If you don't have a blog that is OKAY!)

I will leave the comments on this open until Tuesday, March 17. I will use the super neat random number generator on Wednesday morning to figure out who our winners will be.

Come here real close...so the others don't hear... I'm secretly hoping that YOU win one!! :) Just don't tell everyone else okay?

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE FREEDOM'S CALL Link in my sidebar...I'll be posting there on Sunday. I would love to have you visit us there. :)

Holly got the same email! I am torn between My Deliverer and Victorious! Both of those songs fit my situation right now as we wait for God to deliver us!

Mandisa~ I have loved her from the moment I saw her sing at an LPL conference. I am so happy for her and I have always thought she was beautiful.

Thank you to Mandisa's team for allowing us to win a copy of her new cd.

Love you,
Patty

Hey Girl! I absolutely love Mandisa! Her testimony and love for the Lord is beautiful and inspires me to come closer to the Lord and worship Him! I have read her book "Idol Eyes" and have her other cd. I would love to have this one!
This tired post-partum momma could use some good Mandisa music to listen to while nursing a sweet baby girl!!!!!!

Hi Stephanie! I came here from Patty's blog and I love, love love Mandisa's "My Deliverer". It is a great song for exercising (although sometimes it makes me feel like forgetting the walk and just stretching my arms to the sky and singing to the Lord as loud as possible {grin})!

thank you for the giveaway. Whoever wins will be blessed!

i am visiting via BethAnne's wonderful blog...i love Mandisa..and i love contests! God bless you!

Haley said...

I love Mandisa, too! My favorite song of hers is "Voice of a Savior". I decided to step out of my comfort zone back in June or July and sing it during Ken's Wrestling with the Flesh series. I usually don't sing songs like that, but I really felt that was the one that I needed to do. It went over very well. Anyway, my favorite line in the song is "You and I are not that different. We've got a void and we're just tryin' to fill it up with something that will give just a little peace." Isn't that what we all try to do sometimes? I know I do! Really we should be trying to hear from the Lord and focusing on a relationship with Him.

Hope this comment wasn't too long!

Love you!
