In this Behind The Music Mandisa shares the events that inspired her new song "Bleed The Same."

"We all bleed the same 
We're more beautiful when we come together 
We all bleed the same 
So tell me why, tell me why we're divided 
If we're gonna fight, let's fight for each other 
If we're gonna shout, let love be the cry 
We all bleed the same 
So tell me why, tell me why we're divided..."

"...Tell me who are we 
To judge someone by the kind of clothes they're wearin' 
Or the color of their skin 
Are you black, are you white 
Aren't we all the same inside 
Father, open our eyes to see..."

"Only love can drive out all the darkness 
What are we fightin' for 
We were made to carry one another 
We were made for more"  ~ Lyrics from "Bleed The Same"
