Of all the celebrity deaths this year, this one was definitely the hardest to take. Robin Williams touched the lives of millions in a way that that no one else ever could. He was a huge part of my childhood. Aladdin, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, not to mention the reruns of Mork and Mindy. I absolutely HAD to do something to honor the passing of such a fine, talented comic actor.
I knew I was going to have to sing something, but I didnâ€™t want to do anything from Aladdin because the songs from that just didnâ€™t seem to fit the mood. Then I remembered this song from â€œHookâ€ and thought why not? But then halfway through the production of this track, I remembered a quote from Williams himself that was being touted around Facebook â€“ â€œI used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. Itâ€™s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone.â€
It at that moment that I started crying because I realized Iâ€™d picked too perfect of a song. When youâ€™re alone, youâ€™re not alone. And I havenâ€™t been able to stop crying about it sinceâ€¦
I know what itâ€™s like to think suicidal thoughts. Iâ€™ve even talked friends down in the past from committing suicide. Itâ€™s never worth it. Think about how itâ€™ll affect your family and your friends. Youâ€™ve GOT to be worth it. Thatâ€™s why God put you here.
Weâ€™ll never have another friend like him againâ€¦RIP Robin.
