GRAMMY-nominated artist Mandisa performed her hit song "Stronger" today to celebrate the return of anchor Robin Roberts to ABC's Good Morning America (GMA).

The song from the former American Idol contestant's 2011 album, What If We Were Real (Sparrow Records/EMI CMG Distribution), was used by the morning program last fall when the show updated Roberts' progress after a bone marrow transplant.

" 'Stronger' really helped me get through my recovery," Roberts said on GMA. "Mandisa, thank you so much for being here, and you were here a few days before I took my medical leave. You sang this song. You gave me the CD. And I have listened to it over and over again. ... I do feel stronger on the other side. "

The anchor then asked the singer, "What does the song 'Stronger' mean to you?"

"It's just for people like you, who are walking through the time," Mandisa replied. "If they don't have the strength on their own, we can tap into the strength of God. And He will pull us through and make us stronger on the other side."

Mandisa was also set to return to the syndicated television show ?The Doctors to discuss her weight loss journey. The segment was also to air today. 

Additionally, Mandisa will embark this week on her "3 in 1 Tour" along with Brandon Heath and Laura Story. The 23-city tour kicks off Feb. 21, partnering with international relief organization Food For the Hungry. Click here for more information on the tour.
