American singer-songwriter, Rayana Norwood, otherwise known as Brandy has expressed how her daughter Sy’rai rescued her when she battled depression and suicidal thoughts.
Speaking during an interview with PEOPLE magazine, the 41-year-old singer narrated how she had suicidal thoughts after being involved in a car accident that claimed the life of a woman in 2006, as well as suffering heartbreaks from failed relationships.
She further explained that at some point, she knew she had to keep going for the sake of her 18-year-old daughter who she had with former partner, Robert Smith.
The singer, however, said she would have taken her life if she didn’t have a daughter.
According to her, she was in a terrible place and didn’t think she would be able to make it out.
“I remember laying in my bed super depressed.
“I asked myself, are you just going to give up like this? That’s wack.
“I had to remind myself that I had a daughter and if I can’t do it for myself, I can do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life,” She said.
