Class III obesity, according to the Cleveland Clinic, is formerly known as morbid obesity. It is “a complex chronic disease in which a person has a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher or a BMI of 35 or higher and is experiencing obesity-related health conditions.”

This cause of Mandisa’s passing is listed as a natural cause of death.

Mandisa’s legacy began when she quickly rose to fame on “American Idol” where she placed in the top ten. In 2014, Mandisa won a Grammy for the release of her album, “Overcomer.”

K-LOVE Radio was one of the first to report on Mandisa’s passing.

“Mandisa loved Jesus, and she used her unusually extensive platform to talk about Him at every turn. Her kindness was epic, her smile electric, her voice massive, but it was no match for the size of her heart,” the network shared on X.

In a livestream of Mandisa’s celebration of life, Mandisa’s father, John Hundley, said that she did not die from self-harm, and that she had previously battled with COVID-19.

“Here’s what I think happened,” Hundley said. “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…There was no way for Mandisa to get around the bed and go up there and get her phone to call for help.”

Mandisa’s life was marked by a devout faith in Christ and she lived as a testimony to many that He is with us even in the greatest battles of life.
