Justin Timberlake’s longtime background vocalist Nicole Hurst has died. She was 39.
On Friday, Timberlake shared several photos and videos of Hurst on Instagram, to mourn the women he frequently referred to as his “sister”.
Included in the slides were videos of Timberlake and Hurst on tour with the Tennessee Kids, including one celebratory backstage clip of Hurst being serenaded with “Happy Birthday”.
A selfie the pair took was also in the carousel of memories, as was clips captured at moments the two called each other “bro” and “sister”.
“My heart is so heavy. We lost a beautiful soul this week”, the former NSYNC bandmember began in a heartfelt tribute. “Nicole lit up every room she walked into. On and off the stage she was a constant source of joy and positivity”.
The Grammy winner, 40, continued, “Some things feel so unfair and we will never understand why they happen. What I do know is that we were blessed to laugh with her, to travel with her, and to experience her infectious smile and love for a life filled with music”.
“Nicole, it’s not enough to say that I am going to miss you dearly. Thank you for your light. I will do my best to carry that with me. I love you, my sister. Forever family and forever a TN Kid. 💔”, Timberlake finished.
