Antoine Dodson started off the New Year with a new video of himself pleading with God for help. In the 2 1/2 minute video, a distraught Dodson is seen asking, “God where are you.” He then states, “I’m trying my best to be this good person and you know do the right thing and stuff, but I just feel like life is just knocking me down.”Dodson then talks about how everyone including his child’s mother has turned their backs on him and he feels lost and is on the verge of having a nervous breakdown.
As the video progresses, he breaks down completely when he talks about his son. He states, “I just want the best for my child and be the best man for my child.” He expresses that he is depressed and fearful and doesn’t want anything to happen to his son. He is also afraid of failing as a father.
He ends the video asking God to watch over him.
Dodson became famous after giving an interview on a local television news station when his sister was almost raped by an intruder in the apartment the siblings both shared. The video showcased Dodson giving a passionate and flamboyant delivery style and quickly became an internet sensation.
The Gregory Brothers remixed the news footage into a song and it quickly became a huge success and actually landed on the Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Dodson was able to capitalize on the Bed Intruder song and eventually was able to earn enough money to move himself and his family to a better neighborhood.
In May 2013, Dodson made national news again when he announced that he was no longer a gay man. He also stated that he was a Hebrew Israelite and planned on starting a family.
