Mandisa’s No. 1 Hit 'Overcomer' Featured In New Good Morning America 'Overcomers' Series with Robin Roberts

Mandisa’s No. 1 hit “Overcomer” is once again featured on ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA), this time in a new series. In August, the nation’s No. 1 morning show had the celebrated singer on to perform the track, and also world premiered the song’s music video.

This week, 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.

Also this week, the UP Television Network (formerly GMC) surprised Mandisa by honoring her with their “Uplift Someone” award during the live taping of the 44th Annual Dove Awards at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena.

The ‘Uplift Someone’ award embodies the organization’s core values of uplifting and inspiring others and recognizes an artist who through the message of their music and acts of positivity and kindness, has encouraged people across the nation and truly changed lives.

Presented to Mandisa by GRAMMY® nominee Brandon Heath, the network granted the award to the singer “for her music, message and humanitarian heart, all of which (individually and collectively) have inspired others.” The Dove Awards will be televised exclusively on UP, Monday, October 21 at 8:00 PM ET.

Mandisa will appear on “Katie” Monday, October 21 and the following day will join The Grand Ole Opry in the fight against breast cancer with Women Rock For The Cure™ for its fifth annual “Opry Goes Pink” show.
