Brenda Edwards on son Jamal: I talk to him every morning and every night

Brenda Edwards said she still speaks to her son Jamal every day as she spoke of how comforted she has found the support she has received from his friends and people he has helped.

The young entrepreneur rose to fame after founding music platform SBTV in 2006 and has been credited with helping launch a number of British music acts to fame including Ed Sheeran, Dave and Jessie J.

He died of a heart attack on February 20 at the age of 31.

His mum, 53, revealed the blue jewelery she wore when she appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain was made for her by Sheeran’s mum in Jamal’s favorite colour.

The panelist and Loose Women singer also opened up about starting a trust in her son’s name – The Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust.

She told GMB presenters Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley: “He was this lovely, happy person who always wanted to combine this with this without even thinking about himself most of the time… it was all about helping others. “

She also spoke about how she manages to “understand” her son’s death, saying: “I manage because Jamal’s mantra was about confidence, which is why I named the Trust (the). Jamal Edwards confidence.

“His thing was to empower young people to think about the dreams they want to believe in and how to achieve them.”

She later added, “I talk to him every morning and every night. I say hello good morning baby good night baby

“I just talk about everything. I draw a lot of strength from it and it has inspired me a lot.

“Both my kids are very inspirational and I’ve always spoken to them about the things I do with work, Loose (women) or anything I do – he’s always been a champion.

“He was the one who started my social media because he said I wasn’t doing enough…”

Edwards said Jamal has a will because he owns businesses and opened up about his passion for helping others and how he would spend Christmas every year helping at a homeless shelter.

She told GMB that Jamal is “right now with my mum and dad and my grandma and grandpa.”

“When we laid it to rest there was a ‘J’ in the sky above and the other clouds were all moving, but that ‘J’ never wavered. I believe he is with me. I have faith, I’m someone who believes in it.

“I’m not here to apply that to everyone else, everyone deals with grief in their own way. That’s how I deal with it. And when Jamal was here, I spoke to Mum and Dad… It’s a beautiful thing made out of something quite sad and negative.”

Jamal was also an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, a charity run by the Prince of Wales, and was awarded an MBE for services to music in 2014. Brenda Edwards on son Jamal: I talk to him every morning and every night
