It's hard not to take it personally, as his music was something that touched my life and had me on numerous occasions signing at the top of my untuned voice.

I hate the thought of anyone being isolated by their sadness. Please, if you suffer from depression, speak out, find someone you can talk to without judgment or contact the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) to speak to someone about it.
