Song For Today – Mandisa | Good Morning

Download Good Morning (Feat. Toby Mac) by Mandisa now from the album What If We Were Real.

Who Is Mandisa?

Mandisa’s singing career began as a contestant on American Idol during its fifth season. Although she finished in ninth place, this appearance kicked off her career.

Just four days after appearing on American Idol, Mandisa released her first album entitled True Beauty. This album debuted at the number one spot on the Top Christian Albums charts. This was the first time in the chart’s history that a new female artist had debuted at number one.

While on American Idol both judge Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul made crude and extremely hurtful remarks about Mandisa’s weight. She then made changes to improve her health and ended up losing over 100 pounds, but due to deep depression and suicidal thoughts after the death of a close friend she gained it all back and more.

Now Mandisa is striving once again to lose weight and then to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Story Behind The Song – Good Morning by Mandisa

Good Morning Lyrics

Wave away my yesterday
Cause I’m leaving it behind me.
Hello sunshine, come what may.
I feel something new inside me.
I hear the birds singing
Now my alarm’s ringing
Get up, get up, hey!

It’s a good morning!
Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength,
You give me just what I need
And I can feel the hope that’s rising in me.
It’s a good morning

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Slow down, breathe in,
Don’t move ahead
I’m just living in this moment
I’ve got my arms raised, un-phased
Jump out of bed
Gotta get this party going
I went to bed dreaming,
You woke me up singing
Get up, get up, hey!

It’s a good morning!
Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength,
You give me just what I need
And I can feel the hope that’s rising up in me.
It’s a good morning

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Now I’m smiling, and I’m kissing all my worries goodbye
Got the feeling, if I spread my wings I might even fly
You are my truth, my way
Give me the strength to say
Get up, get up, get up
‘Cause it’s a good morning, hey

Mr. Mac to the mic

Hey, top of the morning to you ‘disa
You smoothie, me ice cold pizza
Cafe au lait, latte dah
You do the zumba, but I do not
Give me like half a marathon,
I’ll give you the gospel of St. John.
Hits me like a wake-up bomb
‘Cause we both know that His mercy flows,
In the morning.

Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength,
You give me just what I need
I can feel the hope that’s rising up in me.
It’s a good morning
Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength you give me just what I need
I can feel the hope that’s rising up in me.
It’s a good morning

Top of the morning to you ‘disa
Hey, top of the morning to you girl
To-to-top of the morning to you ‘disa
Morning little Miss Sunshine.

Man, you morning people
Ha ha ha
No, I’m serious
