R&B singer Mandisa, a favorite top ten finalist from season five of American Idol, will release her first single, âOnly the Worldâ, to retail outlets May 22nd via Sparrow Records. The powerhouse vocalistâs debut album will follow on 31 July. Mandisaâs forthcoming album features a dynamic team of producers including Shannon Sanders and Andrew Ramsey (India.Arie), Christopher Stevens (TobyMac), Shaun Shankel (Amy Grant), Double Dutch, and Brown Bannister. âOnly the Worldâ will hit radio stations on 11 May. The CD single edition in stores 22 May will include a second song, âTrue Beauty.â About her time on the show and the nationwide concert tour that followed, Mandisa says, âMy faith certainly went through some tests of fire, but itâs stronger because of American Idol. I came out of that experience understanding Jesus better. I had been sheltered in Christian circles for a while, and AI helped me realise the kind of impact that Christians can make in the world around them.â
