Formatting text in a SingleStat panel

I created a singlestat panel and used MySQL as the datasource to display a bunch of text. However, when the text is displayed, all I get is a single long string with no newlines. I must be overlooking something simple. What am I missing?

I also have same problem,i tried putting my text in ''Value mapping as well".
It comes as a single string and no new line is added.

I want to achieve this using SingleStat only.
