Mandisa, “Good News”

Contemporary Christian singer Mandisa has released the latest single from her album, “Out of the Dark.” Titled “Good News,” the song was birthed from Mandisa’s experience of sharing with the world the acceptance of Jesus Christ by her brother John as the latter’s personal Lord and Saviour.

The joy experienced by Mandisa is captured well in this ebullient praise party jam, written by the singer with AJ Prius and Matthew West. One of the outstanding tracks off Mandisa’s latest release, “Good News” bodes well for another Top 10 hit for the former American Idol alum.


GOOD NEWS Lyrics
Mandisa

I’ve been quiet for way too long
I can’t fight it no, no more
Got a story and it’s time to tell
‘Cause I just can’t, just can’t keep it to myself
Somebody give me a microphone or a megaphone
Or a telephone (I gotta share it)
You’re gonna clap your hands
Gonna wanna dance when you hear it (hear what?)

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright
Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good, good news
I got that good good news, yeah

I been praying (how long?)
For so, so long
Believing (for what?)
That day would come
He heard me (yes, he did)
And he pulled me out
He put me right here for such a time as now
Come on, clap your hands
Do that funky dance

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright
Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good, good news
I got that good good news, yeah

If you got it, share it
If you need it, receive it
Come on, tell everyone
That it’s all about good news (all about good news)
So much pain in the world
Dark in the world
Sure could use a little light in the world
So come on, tell me your good news

Good news
Got that old made new
Got that joy coming through
Got me feeling alright
Good news
Got that skip in my step
Feel that beat in my chest
Got that love in my life
I’m talking good good news
I got that good good news, yeah
I’m talking good good news
I got that good good news
