In a recent interview with CentricTV, Norwood revealed: “When you’ve been so down and you haven’t believed in yourself for 10 years, to now believe in yourself again — that’s an unbelievable feeling. I was wrestling with where I had been and where I was. I went into a very dark depressive state of being, I stopped believing in what God has given me.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer said she got tired of feeling down for such a long time and when she finally arrived to a point where she was fed up with being depressed, she turned to God for help.

“I just had a moment with God and I explained, ‘Look, I need you to come get me because I want to change my life,” Norwood said, recalling God’s response: “‘You got to do the work, I can help you but you have to help yourself.’”

After that moment of revelation, the multi-talented entertainer says doors and opportunities started to open for her.

“It was interesting because I’ve always wanted to do Broadway and then ‘Chicago’ presented itself,” Norwood said.

The Mississippi born songstress gushed about her new lifestyle change. She reminisced about the times she struggled with stage fright and nervousness but says now she’s in a new place.

“I changed my mind; I changed my diet; I changed the way I moved my body. I started to get into that gym and I started to get into routine, in the spiritual practice. I felt that I was ready for it because I put in the work and the time to get myself together,” Norwood said.
