Jhene Aiko – For My Brother

Jhene Aiko shares a song that initially wasn’t meant to be heard for the public; rather it was only for her brother Miyagi’s ears, who passed away last Thursday from cancer at 26 years old. The peaceful song tells of the strong sibling bond the two shared. She wrote on Tumblr:

“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 ….”
