It’s with a heavy heart that we report that the beautiful Simone Battle, best known as a member of the girl group GRL, whose single, “Ugly Heart” is quickly rising up the record charts, has taken her life at the young age of 25 after a long fight with depression.
RCA Records has confirmed the singer’s untimely death.
Simone first captured the spotlight after her stint on FOX’s “The X Factor” and was known throughout the industry as one of the kindest, most beautiful, and hardest working talented young women.
Depression is no joke folks, especially in our community where we face more than the average obstacles in life, yet are discouraged from seeking outside professional help from therapists. Get the help you need and look out for each other – we’re all we’ve got.
