Per the Cleveland Clinic, class IIII obesity is considered a disease when a person has a body mass index of 40 or more, or if one has a BMI of 35 or greater and is experiencing “obesity related health” issues.

Grammy-winning singer Mandisa, known for her powerful voice and uplifting music, has passed away at the age of 47. Mandisa rose to fame as a contestant on “American Idol” and later found success as a Gospel artist. Her sudden death has shocked fans and the music industry alike.

According to reports from TMZ, Mandisa’s father confirmed her unexpected passing, stating that there were no known health issues prior to her death. The exact cause of her passing remains unknown, leaving her family and fans in mourning.

Mandisa, who captured hearts during her time on season 5 of “American Idol,” finished in 9th place but went on to achieve remarkable success in her music career. In 2014, she earned a Grammy Award for her album “Overcomer,” showcasing her talent and dedication to her craft.

Despite her achievements, Mandisa was open about her struggles with mental health, including battles with depression and thoughts of suicide. In a candid interview with ABC News in 2017, she shared her journey, offering hope and encouragement to others facing similar challenges.

Following the news of her passing, tributes poured in from fans and colleagues in the music industry. Christian radio station K-Love remembered Mandisa for her extraordinary kindness, infectious smile, and immense talent.

David Pierce, the station’s Chief Media Officer, honored her legacy, acknowledging her willingness to share her struggles and inspire others through her music. “Her kindness was epic, her smile electric, her voice massive, but it was no match for the size of her heart. Mandisa struggled, and she was vulnerable enough to share that with us, which helped us talk about our own struggles,” he said.

In this time of sadness, thoughts and prayers are with Mandisa’s family, friends, and fans as they navigate through this difficult loss. May her soul rest in peace, and may her music continue to touch hearts for years to come.
