Ariana Grande's Brother Covers 'Rain on Me' to Celebrate Three Years of Sobriety

Frankie Grande explains that his sister's collaboration with Lady GaGa 'resonates profoundly' with him as he reflects on his rewarding journey to sobriety.

AceShowbiz - Frankie Grande kept it in the family as he chose a song by his sister Ariana to mark reaching three years of sobriety on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.

The 37-year-old dancer and singer took to Instagram to share a video of himself performing Ariana's Lady Gaga collaboration "Rain on Me" alongside which he penned a lengthy note about his journey to getting sober.

"I'm ready #rainonme today is my 3 year sober birthday!" he wrote. "I honestly can not believe it. the gratitude that I am feeling right now for this life beyond my wildest dreams is overwhelming. thank you to all of my amazing friends and family for supporting me on this challenging yet unbelievably rewarding journey."

"I remember where I was 3 years ago before finally turning my will and my life over to the program of recovery. The lyrics 'I'd rather be dry, but at least I'm alive' resonate profoundly with me. I didn't want to continue on, I was desperate to be sober, but I had no tools to get there… and what a difference three years has made. I have the tools to stay sober every day for the rest of my life now and I get a daily choice weather (sic) or not to use those tools. I am proud to say I have used those tools successfully for the past 1,097 days in a row and never plan on stopping. everything happens for a reason."

Frankie concluded his post by encouraging others to seek help for any addiction issues they might be struggling with.

"The dark is placed before us so that we can uncover the light, the mistakes we make are designed to help us learn, our moments of weakness are gifts to let us discover our own strength and potential... so rain on me, and I'll see you as a better happier stronger more spiritually enlightened man on the other side of the storm," he continued. "Grateful for the gifts I learned having survived it. I love you. stay strong. if you are struggling with alcoholism/addiction ask for help… I promise you it will be there for you as soon as you ask."
