ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA), the nation’s No. 1 morning program premiered her video for “Overcomer” on Thursday morning, September 5.
Directed by Eric Welch and featuring personal appearances by Former U.S. Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Captain Mark Kelly, Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton and GMA’s Robin Roberts. The video is very poignant as it has never before seen footage of Roberts and Giffords recovery process.
Mandisa says, “We chose each of them because when we thought of who has been an example of an overcomer in a very public battle, it is hard to imagine anyone more appropriate than the amazing people in my video. They have all fought, and continue to fight victoriously. I pray that sharing their inspirational stories throughout the video will leave people saying, ‘If they can do it, so can I!’”
“I was really inspired by Mandisa’s song ‘Overcomer’ because its message is one of hope, perseverance and faith,” said Gabby Giffords, former U.S. Congresswoman and co-founder of the gun violence prevention organization Americans for Responsible Solutions. “We can’t always control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we respond. Like the song says, if we keep positive and ‘stay in the fight till the final round,’ we can overcome more than we ever dreamed possible.”
Three-time Grammy nominee Mandisa is celebrating her No. 1 entry onto the Billboard Christian chart as well as No. 29 on the Billboard 200 with her latest project, Overcomer. The album has been holding down the No. 1 spot on the Christian iTunes® chart since its release August 27.
