Before 2014, many haven’t heard of the name of Tasha Cobbs outside of her hometown, but it all changed with one song.

Cobbs released an EP late in 2014 and it reached No. 1 on the Top Gospel Albums chart. The singles“Break Every Chain” and “For Your Glory” also reached No. 1 on the Hot Gospel Songs charts. At the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in 2014, Tasha Cobbs took home Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance, winning her first Grammy. Cobbs was awarded the Gospel Artist of the Year, at the 2015 GMA Dove Awards.

With all this success, you’d think she had it made. But it was there was a deep, dark depression behind that scenes that almost silenced Cobbs forever.

“Under the covers I would tell myself things like, ‘Nobody wants you, they only want you for your gifts; they only want you for your talents. People only want you for what you have to offer but nobody is giving back to you,’” confessed Cobbs. “Of course it was all untrue. I had so many people around me who loved me, but for some reason I was stuck in this place of rejection where no matter how good I am or how much I do, or how much I offer, it felt like it wasn’t enough. I would cry for hours. Sometimes I wouldn’t even know why I was crying. It was just a heaviness that comes over you that you just cannot explain.”
