Nashville, Tenn. (October 23, 2013) - Mandisa made her Grand Ole Opry debut last night when she joined in the fight against breast cancer during the Opry's fifth annual "Opry Goes Pink" show in support of Women Rock For The Cure™. GRAMMY® winner LeAnn Rimes flipped the switch on the Opry's signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the night as Mandisa and other artists including Amy Grant, Pam Tillis, Lorrie Morgan and Natalie Grant performed in support of breast cancer awareness.
