Listening to this is heartbreaking... this woman was talented, but her demons obviously caught up to her. So Sad...
Just days before her apparent suicide, Mindy McCready was ready to release a suicide-prevention video dedicated to her deceased boyfriend David Wilson.
As she sings "I'll See You Yesterday," a song intended for her next album, a photo of a rural scene transitions to pictures of McCready and Wilson, followed by contact information for suicideispreventable.org. It had been intended to be used as a PSA.
"She told me that it was beautiful, it made her cry and was exactly what she wanted," says Dan "Danno" Hanks, a private investigator friend who produced the video. "I asked her if I could post it and Mindy's answer was, 'You'll know when it's right.' In hindsight she was having me produce her suicide video."
Hanks posted the video on YouTube on Sunday after McCready was found dead on the porch of her Arkansas home after apparently shooting herself. Last month, Wilson was found dead in the same house, also with a gunshot wound to the head.
The song, written by McCready pal Courtney Dashe and co-writer Jason Walker, is about remembering the good in relationships that had gone sour.
The post on youtube has the following description from the poster:
The last song produced By David Wilson before his tragic suicide. This song was written by Courtney Dashe, a fan of Mindy McCready's, It was recorded by Mindy McCready and has never been released. I acquired it last year when I visited Mindy & David at their home in Heber Springs, Arkansas. Mindy & David wanted me to listen to it and give my opinion. I do not have the rights to the song. I hope that this will inspire those that need help to reach out and ask for it. Contact www.suicideispreventable.org The rights are retained by the artist......... Danno Hanks
