‘I have been blessed. I sing, and music is in my life, and music has always been the connection for me to be able to live, to survive. But I am in no doubt, that that gift is from God and I renewed a relationship with Jesus Christ. People will be going ‘Oh, here we go’. I don’t care, because for me, it saved my life. Everyday of my life, Jesus Christ is that thread, is that lifeline that keeps me afloat. I would really like to help anybody just to say that you are not alone. There are a lot of us, so talk about it, share it, because there are lots of people that can hold you that can understand, and will give you unconditional love. Not judgemental love.’
