August Alsina suffered a devastating loss over the holiday.

The 26-year-old crooner recently took to social media announcing the death of his sister, Chandra

The "Wait" singer revealed that Chandra, the mother of three daughters with his deceased brother Melvin, succumbed to cancer. "We lost such a beautiful soul on Christmas Night To the battle with cancer. I am Utterly devastated & Deeply shattered! Not only for myself, but for my 3 little nieces, whom are now robbed of BOTH parents," he explained.

Reflecting on the grief he's experienced, Alsina added, "First they killed Mel, Now Cancer has stolen you... What is life? Why is life? Why is THIS life? I’m calling on God for the answers. I don’t question God but THIS I’m not in agreement with."

Opening up about how he plans to move forward in the wake of her tragic passing, August Alsina continued, "I’m a DAD now & I have 3 daughters, & i don’t know the slightest thing about it or where to start but unfortunately I/we know loss too well. Rest In Peace my dearest sweet sister..You made it out of this hell hole."
