The Didn't You Know star did not elaborate on the details surrounding the young girl's death, but he praised his fellow singers for their support during a recent concert, where he was overcome with emotion while onstage.

"The passing of my 13yr old niece, Trinity, 4days (sic) ago and the pain it's left her parents and grandparents, aunts uncles, brothers & sister and cousins left me broken on stage, but theses singers were and are so much more than singers," he wrote on on Tuesday (03Nov15).

"Kim Burrell, Jessica Reedy, FRED Hammond, Isaac CARREE, zacardicortez, HEZEKIAH WALKER... Their love helped me minister... it's all for the glory of God! Keep my family in prayer... Home going service is this thursday... another death... but God be praised..."
