Lauren Pesce brother death:
In a tribute to her brother three years after his death, Lauren Sorrentino wrote on Facebook:
I lost my little brother Christopher in 2013, he was 25 years young, a quick-witted charismatic guy with a sweet soul.
It happened suddenly & unexpectedly. He loved and lived for music & put his passion into working towards becoming a DJ.
He introduced me to the world of edm, although I had always liked it, I was never a huge follower of the artists. Swedish House Mafia, Laidback Luke & Avicii were just a few of his idols. Since Chris’ passing these artists songs have become soundtracks to his life in my mind.
I get a chill of goosebumps & a spiritual feeling anytime they come on along with a tearful understanding that he’s with me always and in a much better place.
Avicii’s ‘Hey Brother’ track came out simultaneously with Christopher’s death. I’ll never forget the first time I heard it, it stunned me in how it identified and put my exact feeling that I couldn’t even understand yet into a song.
Today Tim Bergling aka Avicii, another young artist, is gone too soon from what feels like the pressures and challenges of this world. I pray for his family and friends and for anyone struggling today.
There is hope out there for the youth and I pray everyday that those struggling keep the faith and stay the course.
‘Hey Brother’ will continue to bring tears to my eyes, but until I see Christopher again I’ll continue to connect with him through the music he loved 🙏🏼
Rest In Peace 🕊 love you forever baby bro
