Amelle Berrabah: I’ll al­ways have a con­nec­tion with my dad

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Amelle Berrabah will “al­ways have a con­nec­tion” with her late fa­ther. The for­mer Su­gababes singer was left heart­bro­ken when her dad died of can­cer 14 years ago and, although she doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to get over her loss, she be­lieves her hero is al­ways watch­ing over her and she’ll con­tinue to do all she can to make him proud in her life and ca­reer. Speak­ing ex­clu­sively to BANG Show­biz, she ex­plained: “I’ve al­ways got a con­nec­tion with my fa­ther. We were very very close, no mat­ter what I do whether I’m a house wife, work­ing in mu­sic or I’m an ac­tress what­ever I’m do­ing I al­ways just try and do it to the best of my abil­ity. “I ob­vi­ously want to make him proud but the way he brought me up is you make your­self proud and if it’s right, go with it and if you know some­thing is wrong you, just stay away from it. “So it’s pretty sim­ple and quite black and white es­pe­cially now I’ve ma­tured a lot and I have a great busi­ness and I’m do­ing pretty well but I know what it’s like to strug­gle. I just try to be the best per­son I can pos­si­bly be.” It took the 32year-old singer a long time to come to terms with her dad’s death but she soon re­al­ized that the eas­i­est way to deal with the death is by fo­cus­ing on all that he’s taught her. She said: “It’s def­i­nitely hard, it takes quite some time to get used to not hav­ing that per­son there es­pe­cially if you’re very close then it’s a very dif­fer­ent dy­namic in your fam­ily life. But you have to move on, take it day by day, some peo­ple go through those de­nial stages some peo­ple cry non-stop, I feel my sort of char­ac­ter is that you just have to get on with it.
