A musician who transformed his life after a suicide attempt has drafted in celebrities from the worlds of Power Rangers and bodybuilding to raise awareness of mental health challenges.
Mike Logan Stubbs, from Sonora Fields in Sittingbourne, first hit the headlines in December after a video to his song Pain No More went viral, clocking up thousands of hits online.
The 29-year-old, who used to live in Thistle Hill, Minster, began his solo career after a suicide attempt last year following a battle with mental illness. He hopes his music will be able to help others in similar situations.

Now he is working with the likes of Ashford singer Jack Rose and Austin St John, the original red Power Ranger, filming a video for his latest track Before the Darkness Comes.
Mr Stubbs has also got others involved. They are bodybuilder and eight-time Mr Olympia Ronnie Coleman, actor Erik Audé, author Charles Linden, rave DJ Kevin Energy, singer Paul Manners from Britain’s Got Talent and Lee Murray, drummer in 90s band Let Loose.
He filmed his latest video at Big Jam Studios on Sittingbourne’s Eurolink on Monday last week, and hopes it will once again go viral.
He said: “It’s got footage of me, the band and other people holding up cards. It’s done in a story-board fashion with facts about mental health, and motivational bits, too. I want to get people to open up about the issues.”
He is teaming up with The Mix, a young people’s support charity, which also sponsors the Heads Together campaign. They hope to raise money for the services and decrease the stigma of trying to function with anxiety, depression and other conditions.
He will be donating a percentage of his album sales to charity and his self-titled debut album will be available to pre-order on Friday on iTunes and other sites.
