Sneak Peek: Kevin McCall Set To Appear On ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’

Kevin McCall has been last known for his recent social media feuds with his ex-music collaborator Chris Brown, not to mention some coparenting issues with ex Eva Marcille.

Now, the talented singer-lyricist-songwriter-producer heads over to Iyanla Vanzant‘s ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life‘ to dig deeper into more personal issues dealing with his father and more.

McCall has long struggled to express his anger constructively, having always been encouraged by his father to “win” physical fights. Now, in an emotional one-on-one session with Iyanla, Kevin opens up about what he wishes his father understood about him all those years ago.

“I wasn’t a wimp. I was just a good person.”

On the new episode of House of Healing: Fix a Black Man’s Heart, Part 1, Iyanla invites six men into a House of Healing to help fix the black man’s heart. Among the men seeking guidance are Boyz II Men‘s Michael McCary, Kevin McCall, and socialite Lira Galore‘s father Terrance. Preacher and motivational speaker Devon Franklin visits the house to help identify tools for healing. Part 1 of 3.

In a three-part, multi-week episode of OWN’s award-winning series, spiritual life coach Iyanla returns to the “House of Healing” with six African American men struggling with broken spirits and broken hearts. The men—which include a man attempting to build a life for himself after numerous stints in jail to a former singer who struggles with feelings of abandonment to a father looking to mend a relationship with his famous socialite daughter—are struggling with their identities due to the effects of feeling criminalized, dehumanized and victimized by society.

Check out the clip above featuring Kevin McCall.

Be sure to tune in on Saturday, October 29 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) for the full episode on OWN.
