Written by Christi Given | November 27, 2013
PI Girls, our blogger Christi is here sharing the latest in Christian music news and media! Christi is a host on the JCTV Network and has a show online called Christi’s Corner Music News that is broadcast on social media for the network. Join the fun and get the LATEST news right here!
Some of my favorite songs off the new mixtape are “Round of Applause” (prod. by K.E., feat. B.o.B.), “Sell Out” (prod. by Dirty Rice & Sweet Symphony) and “If I Die Tonight” (prod. by Justin Kahler, feat. Novel).
At the recent 44th Annual GMA (Gospel Music Association) Dove Awards in Nashville, Mandisa won the “Uplift Someone” Award with UP TV, the station that broadcasts the Christian music award show. Mandisa was chosen because of her inspiring and encouraging music, such as her latest single, “Overcomer.” Many of you know the song that has touched many lives, and which has not only reached the top of the Christian music charts, but the secular as well. Mandisa was also recently on the show Katie with host Katie Couric, who interviewed the singer on ABC.

Also in recent news, we have singer Sara Groves, who has released a fun music video for her song, “Setting Up the Pins,” which has raw footage of people getting ready for the busy holiday season, Thanksgiving and real video clips of a personal Thanksgiving. Check it out right here:
Have a Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season, everyone! Let us keep praying for those affected by the Super Typhoon storm Hayain. #prayforPhilippines
