Our condolences go out to Kalie Shorr for the loss of her older sister Ashley Rhiannon.

The “Fight Like a Girl” singer took to Instagram to share the news about her loss and to bring awareness to the battle of addiction, from which her sister suffered. In the video, Kalie performs the song Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac, which her sister was named after.

“Yesterday, my beautiful sister Ashley Rhiannon passed away of a heroin overdose,” Kalie wrote. “I don’t even know what to say and I really never thought I would end up here. She was named after the Fleetwood Mac song, which is based on the old Welsh story of a beautiful goddess named Rhiannon who was captivating, beautiful, and magical.

She added, “Ashley made friends faster than anyone I’ve ever met and could find something in common with you in five seconds flat. It’s so hard when you love someone and they are battling addiction because they lose so much of themselves in the process, but I am so thankful for the last conversation I had with her… I really got to tell her how much I loved her and the last words she ever said to me were “I am so proud of you”. I’ll never forget that and that’s how I will always remember her.”

In the post, Kalie shared the resources for those who are battling or know someone battling addiction.

Out thoughts and prayers are with Kalie and her family at this difficult time.
