We learned gospel singer Tina Campbell attempted to stab her husband, Teddy Campbell, in 2014 for stepping outside of their marriage. And the singer confronted those demons on “Mary Mary,” for all of the world to see.
Campbell surprised everyone when she took full responsibility for her husband’s infidelity.
In an Ebony Interview, the singer stated,
“Even though that’s sometimes what you’re faced with, that ain’t the right spirit to do it in. And what happens is, you’re going on and you’re busy and you’ve got children and you’ve got work. And what happens is your husband is last and you don’t realize that he’s last. And if he has a problem with being last you’re like,’Well, what am I supposed to do? You know that I’ve got a career? You know that I’ve got these babies, you’re the one that got me pregnant!’ You want your husband to be the man and to take his place, but because ‘I’m a strong woman, I’m a this woman and I’m a that woman’ we busy stepping on our man. Making him feel small. And you know what? I did that. And I take responsibility for that.”
About the video below featuring Tina and husband, Teddy: Tina explains, “It’s autobiographical for my husband Teddy and I. A few years ago, our life was so bad that the only true therapy we could find was in reading the bible. We began speaking those truths daily. Now we’re grateful to be living those truths. It all comes to life in the video for my latest single “Speak The Word.'”
More recently, 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.”
“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.
