i don't think I've actually been this upset about an artist passing. He influenced so much of the music we have now. RIP X💕 pic.twitter.com/f4HrzKoZNM
Just woke up to awful news. It doesn’t matter if you were a fan or not. It is gut wrenching to hear about the loss of an artist who was so influential, and who’s music helped so many souls. RIP X.— Alex Aiono (@alexaiono) June 18, 2018
