Coming four years after her commercial and critical breakthrough, the Grammy-winning Overcomer, Mandisa returns with a deeply moving effort, 2017's Out of the Dark. In the wake of her success with Overcomer, the gospel star fell into a grief-ridden depression brought on by the death of a close friend. Out of this, however, she gained a renewed sense of faith and creative purpose, all of which she brings to bear on Out of the Dark. Joining Mandisa on the album are several special guests, including TobyMac, Kirk Franklin, and others. Featured on Out of the Dark is the emotive leadoff single, "Unfinished."
