During a promotional event for her new book and album, gospel singer Tina Campbell revealed her nightmare battle with depression and how she “wanted to die.”

Campbell, one half of the platinum-selling gospel duo Mary Mary, told the audience that dealing with her father’s death in 2013 and the consequences of her husband’s infidelities was overwhelming.

“I’ve been saved all my life and a representative of the Gospel could get so low that I wanted to die, kill my children, kill my husband and kill everybody, and go out with a bang, because life was that bad. But that’s exactly where I was in 2013, and God alone saved my life,” Campbell told the audience.

Campbell said it was important to talk about this stage in her life because it may encourage others going through similar situations.

“Part of my testimony, my willingness to speak about the difficult times, comes from the joy I have in the knowledge that it was God who saved me,” she said on Yahoo Music’s Instagram page. “I want to let those feeling as low as I once did know that if He brought me through, He will bring you through! #OnlyJesusDidIt”

Campbell told The Christian Post that a book and solo album were never in her plans, and that both came about through God’s divinity.

“I went through my challenges that I went through last year with infidelity. In the process of writing journals to God, I ended up writing a book that I didn’t know I was writing,” she said. “Once I finished, God started downloading all of this music into me and I knew that God gave it to me to give it away.”

Campbell’s book, “I Need a Day to Pray,” and her latest album, “It’s Personal,” are both available and in stores now.

    I want to sincerely and openly thank for his service which saved me from infidelity and lies of my cheating husband, he was able to hack my partner’s phone so i listen to every call he either made or receive. He also hacked his email passwords and Facebook… I know there are lots of people out there looking for proof and evidence about one thing or the other. Be open and real with him so he can even be at the best of his service to you. Do contact him by the email above.

  2. The kids had nothing to do with it. I like someone’s comment you should not let anyone have the power to bring you that low especially someone who professes to know the lord as their saviour. I understand you have been through something and hopefully you pain will help someone. But how can u move on if u keep bringing it up all the time. Keep some things personal.

    I love what you said theflyingnun. He answers knee mails. Although I think she need to keep her private life private!!!!!!

    I am truly sympathetic about her marital woes, but it seems that her revelations about what she went through are revealed at the beginning of a new season. No one has a perfect marriage, but exploiting infidelity (yeah I said it) for ratings is fowl. Whatever happened between her and her husband should be dealt with PRIVATELY between her, her husband and GOD. Throughout the last season, all of these little stories would pop up about her marriage. Last season, she wanted to stab him. Now she contemplated suicide. Get off of ‘reality’ TV and go about the business of working on your marriage. We don’t need to know the details of your broken marriage.

  5. Everybody deals with things differently, and until you are in that space, where your faith is being tested beyond, what you believe to be your highest measure. Do not say what you will or won’t do? Somethings will always be more or less easier for one person than the other. Thank you Jesus!!! She sought and believed in you enough to now she’s able to overcome, and now she can fight other battles with greater strengths! All praises goes to the lord!!!

    Oh no, no, no.
    She knows her scripture.
    Wanting to kill others, the husband perhaps, herself, maybe, but not feelings towards your children.
    Also, this is something that should be kept in the depths of her head/heart.
    Not everything should be aired, it would have been enough to say he was clinically depressed.
    How will her children feel having this knowledge??
    (That’s what I have sensed is the reason why I prefer her sister, she is less self centred, more humble in her faith.) I like her, but prefer her sister.
    No man, husband, boyfriend, no man, should have that much effect on your core & sense of self & purpose.

  7. All this over a cheating man.women are to forgiving of men and therefore this is why they cheat.he knows how much his wife loves him and he knows all he has to do is say he is sorry and he is back in and most of the time women are more angry at the other woman than there male counterparts.I believe all she went thru.but what about her husband.he is giving a pass and more than likely will cheat again as long as she don’t’s a man thang.I hope he never cheats but they almost do it again.
