In 2014, Brady opened up about his secret battle with depression. “It took me a while to get my stuff together to go, ‘You know what? If you’re not happy, you have to do something about it,’” he says frankly. “Just to admit that you are feeling this way is a huge step. To claim that, to say, ‘Why do I feel dark? Why do I feel unhappy? Let me do something about this.’”
"It was spectacular. And he is a gem! The highlight may have been when he invited folks to do push-ups with him on stage as part of the First Lady's "Gimme 5" campaign. It was spontaneous and fun. It was our first event so your recommendation of Wayne was spot on. He is a master of "master of ceremonies". We are all BIG Wayne Brady fans. And FLOTUS included him in her remarks, which was very cool. "- Partnership for a Healthier America
"He was funny, sincere, and sympathetic. It takes a very talented person to evoke all of those feeling into one speech. I know the twitter world thought he was a hit! I hope he enjoyed himself as much as we enjoyed having him!"- The Kennedy Forum
