Former ‘American Idol’ Mandisa wins Grammy for ‘Overcomer’ for Best Contemporary Christian Music

She was an American Idol and now Mandisa turns heads as the highly successful Christian music artist and last night’s Grammy’s confirms her success with her victory in the Best Contemporary Christian Music category.

Three Idols were nominated for Grammys this year — Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia and Mandisa — but only one is taking home a trophy.

Mandisa is a season five American Idol alum and won her first Grammy for her album Overcomer. She credits Robin Roberts of Good Morning America as being the inspiration for the song’s lyrics.

“Oh my GOSH!!!” was her twitter post.

Overcomer beat out We Won’t Be Shaken by Building 429, All the People Said Amen (Live) by Matt Maher, Your Grace Finds Me (Live) by Matt Redman and Burning Lights by Chris Tomlin.

The title song, Overcomer, which has had long runs at No. 1 on three Billboard Christian charts, won in the category of Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for songwriters David Garcia, Ben Glover and Christopher Stevens.

Mandisa has had three previous Grammy nominations, in 2008, 2010 and 2012 for her first three studio albums, True Beauty, Freedom and What If We Were Real.
