Actor Tyrese Gibson, who’s best known for his role in the “Fast and Furious” film franchise and racy R&B music, revealed in a social media post on his birthday that even in his darkest hours he’s never lost faith in God.
In a Facebook post on Friday, the crooner expressed his gratitude for God as he celebrated another year of life.
“Thank you father God for allowing me to see another birthday. This post was put up at exactly 1:11 a.m. tucked away somewhere hidden on an island from everything and everyone. I just finished praying on the beach, looking up at the stars. I just had one of the best open and honest talks with God about where I am, what He has brought me through, and how I have never ever, ever lost faith in HIM throughout some of my darkest hours. And this is the reason I feel God continues to extend GRACE and FAVOR over my life, family, health and career. Not too many people are able to say this. When people greet me and say Happy Birthday, for the first time in my life I actually FEEL “HAPPY” on my birthday. As you send love my way just know I’m sending it right back to you. Cheers!” Gibson wrote.
Even though he had a rough upbringing, Gibson has often said in video posts that he did not allow his setbacks to hold him back. He first emerged on the R&B scene in the late ’90s and since then has become a household name.
The California native made his acting debut alongside Taraji P. Henson in the 2001 film “Baby Boy” and is now best known on the big screen for his role in “Fast & Furious.”
The Grammy-nominated singer has had his share of public breakdowns, including his reaction to co-star Paul Walker’s death in 2013, but he maintained that he looks to God through it all.
