When the Curtains Close with Pop-Singer-Songwriter Andee
Tonight’s interview features pop singer-songwriter Andee. Andee shared the evolution of her singing career and how it began when she was just a child. Andee first won the hearts of audiences through appearances in the TV show Star Academie, has toured with famous performers such as Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga, and opened for Bryan Adams. Her song “Sorries,” co-written by superstar Pink also achieved tremendous success with radio stations across the country.
Her first single, “Never Gone,” reached the Canadian top 40.
Andee spoke about how her struggle with depression and body image issues started when she was a teenager and her journey towards love and self-acceptance. Andee spoke about being diagnosed with Bipolar 1 Disorder, a mental disorder that causes dramatic shifts in a person’s mood, energy, and ability to think clearly. This medical condition causes a person to cycle through periods of depression and elevated mood (euphoria, exceptional energy, risky behaviors…).
Some people with Bipolar type 1 will experience psychotic symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations during severe bipolar episodes of mania or depression. A person having a psychotic episode is disconnected from reality. This was Andee’s case. Anti-psychotic medication is necessary for her.
Andee shares how things started making sense once she received that diagnosis and how it took her time to accept and be open about her diagnosis fully. She also shared her struggle to accept herself with her imperfections, how everyone struggles with something, and her journey towards self-acceptance and self-love. Andee also shares the moments she’s struggled with feeling visible and how she was able to release the way her albums performed from her self-worth. She spoke about how she worked to love every part of herself and how she’s able to work through the hard days.
