Born Mandisa Lynn Hundley on October 2, 1976, She grew up in Citrus Heights, California. Upon completing her education at El Camino Fundamental High School, she pursued her studies in Vocal Jazz at American River College in Sacramento.

Following her appearance on American Idol in 2006, Mandisa dedicated herself to improving her health and losing weight. The inspiration behind her second album, Freedom, stemmed from her triumph over a food addiction.

However, in 2014, Mandisa faced a setback after losing a dear friend to breast cancer.

This tragic event caused her to regain much of the weight she had previously lost, leading to feelings of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Feeling abandoned by God, Mandisa decided to step away from the spotlight.
