Jordin Sparks Loses 4 Loved Ones In 6 Days
Losing a loved one is never easy as it takes time for a person's wounds to heal. However, this singer has suffered tremendous heartbreak.
Sparks's Emotional Instagram Post
On Feb. 1, the American Idol winner posted a heartbreaking message on Instagram. The "No Air" singer stated that she felt broken.
"I'm in shock, numb, and feel everything all at the same time," Sparks wrote.
The "This Is My Now" singer commented how she lost one of her closest friends, fellow Idol alum and close friend Leah LaBelle, on Jan. 31. She also mentioned LaBelle's late husband, Rasual Butler, in her post.
Next, Sparks paid tribute to her beloved stepsister, Bryanna Jackson-Frias, and her cousin, Q. While her stepsister lost her battle with sickle cell amenia, it is unknown how her cousin, Q, passed away.
"The world is less sparkly without you in it. Rest In Peace and Power. I love you forever," Sparks wrote on Instagram.
The recording artist concluded her post with a simple request for her fanbase to pray for her and her family.
Four Angels in a week. My heart is just so heavy & broken. I'm in shock, numb and feel everything all at the same time. Leah & Rasual (one of my closest friends and her amazing other half who also was a great friend), Bryanna (my step sister) and Q (my little cousin), you were such bright lights in this crazy world. You made everyone better just by knowing them. And your smiles made anyone's day better. The world is less sparkly without you in it. Rest In Peace and Power. I love you forever. Find Miles and hug him for me. ♥️ Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Don't ever skip a chance to tell someone you appreciate them or how much you love them. Please, please continue to cover their families and our family with thoughts and prayers. #unicornsdontdie #sicklecellsux
