I love me some Mandisa! Ever since she climbed to the top 10 on American Idol five years ago, I’ve been a fan. Her album True Beauty is on my running playlist. Now she’s back with What If We Were Real, a celebration of her recent journey that includes everything from an over 115-pound weight loss to a new musical sound. She and I get real as we talk about body image, praying for a great guy and maturing through life’s ups and downs. Oh, and I shamelessly audition for her as a backup rapper. I had to strike while the iron was hot, folks. I’ll be touring with her soon, I’m sure.
