July 25, 2012 1 comment

It’s never easing losing a loved one, and it’s even harder when you do it in the public eye. Singer Jhene Aiko is currently mourning the loss of her brother Miyagi, who died last week from cancer. To help cope with the pain, she penned a touching tribute aptly titled ‘For My Brother.’

On her Tumblr page, she described what it was like to let her brother hear the song shortly before his death. She wrote, “I was so nervous to play it for him myself, so when I left to San Francisco on Thursday I had my TT play it for him. She said his breath got calm as he listened and I know he heard every word. Later that night he became the angel he was born to be and I am so grateful that he got to hear this before he left on his infinite journey.”

Give the song a listen below:
