*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.
