Our thoughts and prayers go out to JoJo and her family during this difficult time.
The 24-year-old singer just shared an old picture of herself with her dad, Joel, who sadly passed away today on Instagram.
JoJo captioned with the image, “I missed you even while you were here. I will miss you infinitely more now that you’re gone. Thank you for holding on as long as you did. I know you tried your best. You are free now. I will love you always, Dad. I can feel you with me. Rest now. In PEACE. I miss your voice. I wish more people could have heard it. I promise I will keep singing for you.
“Joel Maurice Levesque. January 8, 1955- November 14, 2015,” she added.

The 24-year-old singer recently opened up with Vulture about her comeback in the music world.
“I knew that since I had been fighting against this for so long, I wanted to continue to take the high road. I also think it’s unfair to all the producers and writers I worked with to just put the shit out, because they deserve to be compensated, just like I do,” JoJo shared about why she chose not to release her music on her own.
JoJo just dropped the emotional music video for her latest single “Say Love” and you can watch it below!
“For the second visual off the tringle, I wanted something to contrast our stylized warehouse from ‘When Love Hurts’,” the 24-year-old “Leave (Get Out)” hit-maker told Buzzfeed. “This song called for something open and intimate, while focusing on the tension of being with someone but not fully being on the same page. Calling out for more. The backdrop of sprawling field and tall trees reminded me of autumn in New England, my favorite time and place. I had so much fun making this video and I hope you love it like I do.”

The 24-year-old singer just recently dropped a new acoustic version of her new song “When Love Hurts”. Check it out below!
“It’s not a dark album, or it’s not harping on the past, or negativity, or anything like that,” JoJorecently explained about her upcoming record.
She added, “I think the album is infused with my favorite subject, which is love. Love of all different areas — romantic love, sexual love, self love. That’s my favorite thing to sing about. That’s what moves me the most. Love is the illest drug I’ve ever tried.”
The 24-year-old “When Love Hurts” singer is set to kick off a headlining North American Tour on November 2 at Minneapolis’ Triple Rock Social Club and continue through mid-December where she will finish up in New Orleans.
“I wanted to make a well-rounded album. Something that you could feel all the way through,” she shared about her forthcoming album she’s still planning out.
JoJo continued, “I’ve talked a few times about wanting to be the soundtrack to people’s life, particularly young women. I’m a young woman, and that’s who I know the best. I want to be that girl for people. I love dance music. I love house. I love hip hop. I love great ballads. I love great songs. My intention was to make great songs.”
