Kehlani Delivers Powerful Speech

R&B songstress delivered a powerful speech about mental illness during recent sets. The singer opened up about her suicide attempt back in March.

“[Suicide] is something that so many young people are dealing with,” Kehlani said. “And so many young people slip under the rug. Please don’t try it. Don’t do it.” Then, referencing her own suicide attempt, the singer revealed, “It wasn’t a first time thing, and that’s not okay…for anyone. Not for the people around you, not for the people that love you, not the people that care about you.”

In March, Kehlani made headlines when she posted a photo of her arm with an IV sticking out of it to Instagram captioned, “Today I wanted to leave the Earth.” She then addressed her relationship with both PARTYNEXTDOOR and Kyrie Irving. “God saved me for a reason, and for that… I must be grateful.. Cuz I’m not in heaven right now for a reason.”

We wish you the best Kehlani.
