I wrote and recorded this myself on my lap top, for my brother…. Miyagi . this song was really just intended for him to hear….. but i thought it would be nice to share ….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….now i hear him telling ME , what i was singing to him… to not give up . i love you SO much Miyagi!!!! . Everything x2 now. Everything for you now ….- Jhene Aiko

Jhene lost her brother last week to cancer and this heart-felt ballad is her tribute to him. Its six minutes of pain, love, and really gives perspective of how close she was to her now deceased sibling. Going so far as saying she would die for him *chills*. The above quote and picture was posted on her tumblr along with the song. Our hearts go out to Jhene and her family during these trying times.
