It has been almost two weeks since the sudden death of Christian singer, Mandisa. 

As her death is still being investigated, her father, John Hundley, speaks out about the passing of his daughter. Mandisa was found unresponsive in her apartment on April 18 and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have said that they don’t suspect any suspicious or criminal activity and Mr. Hundley does not believe that self-harm was a factor in Mandisa’s death either.

During her funeral on April 27th, Hundley spoke about how his daughter was found on the day that she passed away. “But here’s what I think happened,” he said during the service. “Mandisa fell down in her bedroom. They found her on the floor. If you look from the rear of her bed, she was laying on the left side. It’s clear that’s where she was laying, there was a couple of big rugs there and some clothes. On the right side of the bed, front, was this nightstand. I found her phone on the right side of the bed. There was no way for Mandisa to get around the bed, go out there and get a phone to call for help.”

He continued, “She did not harm herself. As she said, Mandisa loved the Lord and the Lord loved Mandisa.” Hundley also added that she told him that she had gotten COVID before she passed away. “She told me some time ago that she had gotten COVID-19 and she had been weak trying to get over that. But she was trying to press through,” he said. “We talked so much on Easter morning, but I thought she was going to this conference, and so I had not called her recently but I’ve talked to her a lot. May she rest in peace now.”

We are still keeping Mandisa’s family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.
