Singer Jazmine Sullivan suffered a tragedy over the weekend after losing her mother, Pamela Joi Sullivan, at the age of 64.
The Grammy award-winning singer took a few days before taking to Instagram on Monday, July 24 to announce the heartbreaking news to her fans and followers.
The post included a video clip showing Sullivan shaving her hair in solidarity with her mom who was going through chemotherapy treatment.
“You mommy, are the prettiest picture, the best lyrics and sweetest melody I’ve ever heard. And I’m so proud of u and proud to be ur daughter,” she added.
“My mom was my biggest supporter since I was a child,” she told Shondaland at the time. “She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, so this was a full-circle moment of finally getting the payoff that we worked hard for.”
“Not only that, but her being in a healthy state and being able to experience it with me, it was really beautiful and let her know that I love her and appreciate her. I wouldn’t even have been here without her.”
