A coroner’s report states Grammy-winning Christian singer Mandisa Lynn Hundley did not die from Covid-19 or suicide.

Mandisa, 47, was found dead in her Williamson County home on April 18.


Mandisa’s father, John Hundley, told mourners at Brentwood Baptist Church in Nashville that she was diagnosed with the COVID before she died.
