August Alsina is asking fans for prayers and peace as he mourns the loss of his sister, Chandra.
Wednesday night, the “No Love” singer shared a video tribute to his sister, who passed away on Christmas night after a battle with cancer. The brief clip begins with Chandra styling Alsina’s hair and later features candid photos of the siblings together, as Alsina’s 2015 effort “Other Side” plays in the background.
The video was accompanied by a lengthy caption which helps contextualize how deep their bond truly was. “My sister, My friend, life giver to my nieces, my hair magician, my biggest supporter, my number one fan,” Alsina begins.
“We lost such a beautiful soul on Christmas Night to the battle with cancer. I am utterly devastated & deeply shattered! Not only for myself, but for my 3 little nieces, whom are now robbed of BOTH parents.”
The R&B crooner then expressed how difficult it’s been for him accept his sister’s untimely death and his newfound responsibility of being a father figure to her children.
“I’m a DAD now & I have 3 daughters,” he wrote. “I don’t know the slightest thing about it or where to start but unfortunately I know loss too well.”
“Rest In Peace my dearest sweet sister..You made it out of this hell hole.”
