The crooner said that since drug addiction can be linked to spiritual forces, the God factor is necessary for healing people in such circumstances, as he related how God delivered him from alcohol abuse and other worldly lifestyles.

Emotionally, because anxiety can sometimes make you feel shy when you see the audience while performing; therefore, you need something to hide you from feeling shy.
