Danny Gokey & Mandisa
W/ Special Guests: Love & The Outcome and Jasmine Murray
Food for the Hungry presents the RISE OUT OF THE DARK tour featuring American Idol alums Mandisa and Danny Gokey and will include special guests Love And The Outcome and Jasmine Murray!
Danny Gokey and Mandisa have a lot in common as American Idol alumni who have overcome tough times after the deaths of loved ones. Now, the Christian singers are joining forces for their Rise Out of the Dark Tour. Joining them are special guests Love & The Outcome and fellow American Idol alum Jasmine Murray.
The title of the tour hints at the obstacles the pair have overcome in their lives. Gokey had to overcome the death of his wife and high school sweetheart Sophia Martinez in 2008. Although he remarried in 2012, Gokey would have never started his new family if he did not find healing in God and music to break free from his depression. Mandisa also suffered a tragic loss when her close friend died of cancer a few years ago. “There was a series of about three years where I kind of just went MIA,” Mandisa revealed. “It really sent me into the deepest pit of despair that I have ever been in in my life. I was questioning everything about the goodness of God and why He allows things like this to happen.” However, the singer has since overcome the hard times with the help of God, family, and friends.
“There is hope for those battling depression,” she wrote on Instagram. “God lifted me #OutOfTheDark, and I believe He’ll do the same for you!”
Hurry and buy your seat for this event, but DON’T expect to sit in it much! This show will have you up on your feet and celebrating all night long!
