Despite Mindy’s struggles over the years, I definitely wasn’t expecting this. I had read about her boyfriend’s suicide recently and wondered how she was going to cope…but I never thought she’d take her own life. I never thought she’d leave her two little boys.
I don’t really listen to country music so I actually knew who Mindy was through her appearance on season 3 of Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab. She is now the third person from that season to have passed away – Mike Starr died in 2011, Joey Kovar in 2012. So sad.
I hope that Mindy is now at peace from all the demons she couldn’t defeat. I wish she had tried to seek help but maybe she didn’t feel “help” could save her anymore. Wherever you are Mindy, I hope you found the light and tranquility…
Ten Thousand Angels was released as a single in April of 1996 from Mindy’s debut album of the same name. It went to #6 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles and Tracks. It also went to #13 in Canada.
Above is the official video. Rest in Peace, Mindy.
