Demi Lovato Speaks About Coming Out To Her Parents And Almost Quitting Music
Demi Lovato’s performance at Grammy was spectacular as people were left in awe of her. It was written and recorded just days before she overdosed and wind up hospitalised, the singer shared with Andy Cohen on his Radio Andy Sirius XM show how proud she was to be able to bring the song to that stage and the Grammy audience worldwide according to TMZ.
Despite a false start precipitated by emotions, Demi admitted:
“she was really proud of the vocal and I thought, ‘I’ve never had a moment like this, you know, where I’ve sat down at a piano or that I’ve stood next to a piano and sang my heart out. When I performed the song, I looked at the front row and I saw my mom and my two sisters, and I think seeing them in the front row just overwhelmed me with emotion”
She explained she was overwhelmed with emotions as the song is an expression of her vulnerability and what she is going through.
When she was in the hospital and uncertain of her future, Demi told Andy she determined:
“If I ever come back from this, I end up going back to music and I’m on stage and I get a first performance, I want it to be at the Grammys and I want it to be this song.”
Her vision came true exactly as she wanted it to. When Andy asked if she thought she might never come back to music, Demi replied, “Absolutely.”
“We didn’t know what was going to happen,” she said, again saying that she would likely be able to give more specifics about her ordeal down the road as she just wasn’t ready yet. “We didn’t know how healthy I’d be when I left, it was a scary time in my life for sure.”
