Anyone who has suffered from the death of a loved one can connect with the U.K. debut single of American singer/songwriter, Jenn Bostic, titled, “Jealous of the Angels.” Bostic was inspired to write the song after the sudden death of her father in a car crash, and both the song and video are touching people around the world.
“The first time I sat down at the piano after the accident, I shut my eyes and honestly felt my dad’s presence next to me,” said Bostic. “I poured my heart into those first few songs. The only way I could connect with him was when I played music. I still feel that way.”
Her father was a musician who taught Bostic and her brother folk songs like “Sunny Side of the Street,” and turned her on to musicians Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Rait. The video has already received more than 1.1 million views on YouTube.
“When I play ‘Angels’ and people come up to me and tell me a story about losing a loved one, how the song touched them and helped them heal, that means more to me than anything,” said Bostic.
