Brandy Talks Renewed Sense of Faith in God After Overcoming Depression & Outlook on Life After Landing Major Role in Broadway Play ‘Chicago’
A year ago, R&B singer and actress Brandy Norwood, was wallowing in a state of depression, but today, she claims she now has a renewed sense of faith in God and outlook on life now that she has landed the role of Roxie Hart in the Broadway play, “Chicago.”
Speaking with NewYork.com, she talked about moving past the state of depression she was living with through the help of God! Brandy is now using the opportunity she got in playing the role of Roxie Hart to glorifying God saying she believes He was preparing her for something special before she secured the role.
“People would never guess the dark space that I was in about a year ago and how long I was sad and depressed. Long story short: I cried out for help and the decision followed to be the best version of myself,” she recalled. “I then did the work spiritually, mentally and physically and saw my old life disappear. ‘Chicago’ presented itself to me and I then stepped into my dream.”
“When Chicago presented itself, I knew that this was the ‘something’ that God was preparing me for,” Brandy told Newyork.com. “I was very nervous because it was an unknown territory but I kept hearing in my spirit, ‘God wouldn’t put something in front of you that you couldn’t do.'”
The singer also recalled having to overcome disappointment with her career which led her to losing faith in herself and God.
“At the end of the day, I stopped believing in myself and I started to lose faith in God and what He blessed me with. I stopped believing,” she revealed. “Now, I’m dreaming again and I believe that any and everything is possible. It took a while for me to get to this place, but I’m here now and I’m never going to stop believing ever again.”
Brandy further explained that she hopes to use her story as a source of inspiration for others.
“I know who I am and what I am here to do and I know that God is always with me, for me, and rooting for me,” she told Newyork.com. “That’s enough to inspire the world.”
