Heartfelt Video on Battling Addiction

Singer JoJo saves our souls, with help from Robin Williams's daughter, Zelda.

Singer and songwriter JoJo dropped her new "tringle" (three singles) earlier this week and we are loving the track "Save My Soul," a tune that speaks to many people living with HIV or struggling with substance abuse. The song, JoJo says, is about battling addiction and depression, and the video for it (directed by her friend Zelda Williams, daughter of Robin Williams) was filmed just one month before Jojo's father died after a long battle with addition. 

The song, she says makes her think of the "universal struggle of seeking victory over the feeling of powerlessness to a situation.”

"Losing my father at the end of last year and knowing the propensity for addiction of all kinds that runs deep in my blood from both sides makes it next-level important for me to live," JoJo writes in the liner notes.
