Mandisa Pens Book on Faith and Fame

at . Comments
On American Idol, Mandisa sang her way into the hearts of millions. Although she didn't win, the experience helped propel the gospel singer's career to a higher level.

Later this month, she will perform with Kirk Franklin and Toby Mac at the 38th Annual GMA Dove Awards. She's also currently recording her debut album, which will be released on EMI-CMG.

But music is not the only way Mandisa plans to share her Christian beliefs with the world.

The former American Idol hopeful has signed on to be a spokesmodel for Ashley Stewart stores and in June 2007, she will release Idoleyes: My New Perspective on Faith, Fat & Fame.

In the book, Mandisa candidly talks about various times in her life, such as how her faith was challenged and deepened as a result of Idol. She also talks about her longtime battle with food addiction.

The Christian publisher, Tyndale, will release the book.
