The Relentless Church pastor was honoring the actor and singer, who recently celebrated his 44th birthday on December 30.
Pastor John Gray recalled a time when he was suicidal and said he “made a mistake” by calling Tyrese.
Two hours later, the “Sweet Lady” singer was in his driveway.
“He dragged me out of the house and into a vehicle that took me to a certified counselor,” Pastor Gray wrote.
In closing, Pastor Gray wrote, “When I was almost dead you fought for me. I won’t ever forget it.”

When I was trying to figure out a way to end my life, I made a mistake. I called @tyrese. He said, “let me call you right back”.
Two hours later he was in my driveway. He dragged me out of the house and into a vehicle that took me to a certified counselor. Oh yeah, and an IV drip, a chef’s table full of food, and holistic professionals ready to get all the pain in my body and soul alleviated.
He is the most gifted human on the planet. He is top 10 r&b singer of all time. Top-grossing film actor. He’s a better friend. And had continued to be a real friend and brother.
Happy birthday to my friend and brother, and may God bless you and the kids, and your family for generations to come.
When I was almost dead you fought for me. I won’t ever forget it. I know it’s been a couple of days but we celebrate all month! Happy birthday @tyrese!

Pastor Gray’s wife, Aventer Gray, joined the convo writing:
Listen… this post! I can think of about 28 more things he has done from his heart. He is an incredible human. My big brother is one of one!
We love you @tyrese, and it’s real love in all seasons. That’s priceless. Thank you for who you are.
Not what you do, that’s second to who you actually are! Happy Happy Birthday again!
Tyrese has a reputation for stepping up and stepping in to help friends when they are in need.
Happiest Birthday, Tyrese.
