Barry Chandler is on his way back.
Since the story of the 28-year-old’s battle with his drug addiction and his recovery was carried in Friday’s edition, people have been responding, offering good wishes and prayers for his well being and recovery.
During that story, the entertainer shared how he begged and lied to get money to feed his habit.
Chandler, who performed with the band Kryptonyte on Saturday night during the LIME/HOTT FM Cavalcade in Belleplaine, St. Andrew, said “thanks” for the well wishes and prayers and noted he would continue to take it one day at a time.
Here are some of the comments posted on line in support of the young entertainer:
Congrats to you Barry, keep your head up and get closer to God. You will see he takes care of everything.
My prayers go out to you. There is always something called a second chance. Only who feels it knows it.
Congrats hun, you are a stronger person now. Don’t let no one or anything steal your joy.
You have nothing to be ashamed of – people make mistakes. It’s learning from them that’s important. I wish you the best in your future and prayer you live the fullest life in the future.
Give thanks Barry. I hope that this story will touch someone and assist them in either turning their life around or stop them form charting the same path. As Sandra said, one day at a time.
I do not know your music, but anyone delivered from drugs has my support. My prayer is that you come to know God as your personal Lord and saviour. You have a powerful testimony! Use it to help those who are weak and do not forget to give God the glory for he is the one who delivered you.
I identify with your ongoing struggle as a recovering person, and there are many recovering persons in the music business so your not alone in this. One day at a time bro.
Well done Barry! Be proud!
My dear, I bless God for sustaining you in the mist of the storm, I sang with you in the Richard Stoute Teen Talent competition, and from then I knew you would go places. Continue to share your testimony with others, it’s persons like yourself that God will one day raise up to make a difference in the lives of our young people. Walk tall, with your head held high my friend. Each one reach one. God bless you. I will keep you in my prayer.
