Snooki‘s singer friend Veronica Kole lost her father, Edmund James Kole, to cancer in 2015. In response, the New Jersey-based singer-songwriter, who’s from Freehold, wrote the tearjerker song “Warrior” in his memory and is using it as a way to raise money for charities fighting cancer through her Donations for Daddy Foundation.
The official music video was released on Monday and you will definitely want to watch somewhere where you can have a private cry.
Snooki encouraged her followers to check out the touching song.
