Destiny Best (photo: submitted)Release date on World Suicide Prevention Day

Local singer/songwriter Destiny Best is tapping into her personal experiences with her debut single, "I Choose to Live," in which she talks about her struggles as an adolescent.

Destiny partnered with producer Jon Matthews to record the song, which is about her experiences as a teenager living with domestic abuse and depression, which led to thoughts of suicide.  

Part of the proceeds will be donated to support Crisis Services Canada, which mans the National Suicide Helpline 1-833-456-4566 that was established in November 2017. 

Destiny, who is a graduate of Holland College’s School of Performing Arts, said the song was her way of telling young people that it’s okay to ask for help.

“It was such a dark and difficult time in my own life, I want to make sure that people know there are people who understand what they are going through, and there are people who can help them,” she said. “Help is available 24/7 and it’s confidential.” 

Alan Dowling, Destiny’s instructor when she was in the SoPA Music Performance program, said the song will resonate with people.

“It’s a great collaboration with Jon Matthews,” he said. “It’s a beautiful song with a powerful message.”

The song will be released on September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day, and will be available for purchase at destinybestmusic.com.
