READ J’SOMETHING’S FULL STATEMENT HERE:

“I often get asked what the highlight of my career has been ... people often expect me to jump to winning awards or selling out shows or performing for Obama ... none of these actually. The highlight of my career has been spending 7 days in a car driving Bra Hugh around writing music and talking (mostly listening) about life. Never have I met someone who imparted so much onto my life in such a short span of time. I will be writing a blog post to share with you more about what this man meant to me and what he left with me. To his family and his team I pray for comfort and peace ... Bra Hugh I will miss you!”

The pair released a song and video together last year titled, Heaven in You.
