Reality TV star and mom of 2 Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has teamed up with her New Jersey-based pop star friend Veronica Kole to share Vernoica’s moving and catchy new song “Warrior,” which will be officially released on Vevo on Father’s Day, June 19. The song, with a video shot in the pediatrics unit of Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune City, features Veronica serenading children and families, and has special meaning, because Veronica lost her father to liver cancer earlier this year. Check it out (and have tissues handy).

The song’s message, that there’s a warrior in all of us, resonated with Snooki’s fans, who shared heartbreaking stories of their families’ battles with cancer in the comments.

Here’s a longer version of the song, which Veronica performed at a cancer benefit earlier this year at B.B King Blues Club & Grill on the BeYOUtiful Tour.

This isn’t the first time Snooki has praised Veronica’s music. In 2014, Team Snooki hosted a concert to benefit liver cancer charities that featured Veronica’s music.
