With the 2014 Grammy nominations being fully unveiled on Friday night (Dec. 6) during the "Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! -- Countdown To Music's Biggest night" show in Los Angeles, one must admit that Mandisa has had a good year as an overcomer. Mandisa’s Overcomer is currently the biggest Christian pop song, the song is not the only thing making rounds on several Christian charts as the album is doing the same thing. The album also titled Overcomer was released August 27 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart, with the album's title track holding on to the No. 1 spot for several weeks on the National Christian Audience chart as well as the No. 1 position on the Christian/Gospel Core Digital sales chart for 12 weeks and counting.
Overcomer’s video got its first sneak peek at the Dove Awards ceremony this year and the UP Television Network (formerly GMC) surprised Mandisa by honoring her with their “Uplift Someone” award during the 44th Annual Dove Awards at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena.
In August, the nation’s No. 1 morning show Good Morning America had the celebrated singer on to perform the track, and also world premiered the song’s music video. GMA launched their “Overcomers” Series with co-host Robin Roberts using both the song and its title in its national TV and web spots. In the series, viewers are asked to share their story with Roberts, telling about a dream they fulfilled with the chance for their story to be shared with America on GMA.
The Overcomer singer has also partnered with SonGear.com to launch her own clothing line SimplyMandisa, an inspiration-based clothing and accessories collection developed from Mandisa herself. A percentage of the proceeds from sales of SimplyMandisa goes to benefit Lionshare, a Nashville-based organization aimed at discipling and developing Godly leaders within church life and culture through relationship, equipping experiences and strategic resources.
The song/album has since made waves, inspired and elevated Mandisa. Last night, to crown the year 'Overcomer' earned the Mandisa three Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Best Contemporary Christian Music Song and Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance.
The 56th Grammy Awards will be held on Jan. 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
