With the stigma surrounding depression and mental health disorders and the rising statistics of teen suicide, today’s Suicide Prevention Day is rather important.
The importance of suicide prevention hits home with singer/songwriter Starshell. The beautiful co-writer of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” lost her sister to suicide and now, she’s taken it upon herself to be the spokeswoman for the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention.
GlobalGrind sat down with Starshell to discuss how the world can prevent suicide, and how she coped with the untimely death of her beautiful sister. The “My Star” singer also discussed touring with Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo, working with Ne-Yo, her infamous studio session with Kanye West, and of course, her own projects.
