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.
