R&B star Tweet, who’s currently dating controversial Pastor Jamal Bryant, is glorifying God online for healing her after she checked into a hospital over blood clots in her lungs and right arm.
Tweet, whose real name is Charlene Keys, took to Instagram to share her testimony, saying, “Miracles still happen!!!!! Just wanted to say thank you all for your love, concern, flowers, cards and most of all your prayers. I am doing well and going home soon. I was down but never count God out!!! To God be the Glory!!!”
Late last month, Pastor Jamal Bryant of the Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland, shared about his girlfriend’s health challenges on Instagram and requested for prayers. He wrote: “ALERT!!! I need your prayers for @tweet. She’s been admitted to the hospital for blood clots in both lungs & right arm! Doctors can’t trace it but God is a healer! Prayer still works…”
Braynt, who’s been having serious relationship issues, disclosed about his relationship with Tweet last year during the pilot of the show “Preachers.” He said, “A year ago I was walking through Times Square going to an Oprah Winfrey movie premiere and I bumped into R&B Singer Tweet, who is my absolute favorite female singer in the world. And I pulled an Orrick move and asked for a picture. We have grown into an incredible friendship; I call her my ‘last lady.’”
Tweet came to the limelight back in 2002 after releasing her No. 1 R&B hit song “Oops (Oh My).” Just recently, the singer surrendered her life to Christ and said she’s been singing gospel music as well.
“My message will be different than it was before and I think people right now are hurting. They want something real and they want to relate. I think that’s what gospel is and I think I’m going to bring them God in a different way that they can relate to,” she said.
It’s good to see that Pastor Bryant is doing well in his relationship with Tweet, knowing that his relationship with his baby mama, LaToya Odom, went into shambles, a development that has seen his former sweetheart take him to court over child support among other issues. In fact, Odom wanted him jailed for contempt.
As for Tweet’s healing, we also give God the glory.
