Rest In Paradise Andrea Martin. 😞 We are all special in some way, but Andrea Martin was extraordinarily special. Her spirit was infused into each lyric & melody she blessed us with. Our connection was a divine union. We went to school together & had no idea that soon after, we’d be brought together as partners, co-writers & friends through adulthood. She brought out the best in me & everyone she worked with. We laughed, cried, fought & loved hard. She was a blessing to everyone around her in ways no one will ever know. She taught me about life, love, loyalty & of course music. Her musical genius lives on in the songs she contributed to the soundtrack of all our lives. Laguardia High School Alumni. Phenomenal Singer/Songwriter. She was one of a kind. The most talented female writer I’ve ever known. Her musical instinct & passion remain unmatched. Gone too soon.💝💖💗💔 Thank you to Koi sojer/snap N U Photos for capturing this moment 🙏🏼 #songwriters #r&b #singers #andreamartin
Monica also took a minute to reflect on Martin’s contributions and talent, writing in a tweet: “Before You Walk Out Of My Life” has always had a special place in my heart… Now it has a deeper meaning for the incredibly talented songwriter. Rest well Andrea Martin. We love you always.”
“Last night I sat at my piano & felt drawn to sing Better in Time,” Leona Lewis wrote in an Instagram post. “I played it through a number of times as it was the only song my heart felt like singing. This morning I woke up to the heartbreaking news that Andrea Martin, who wrote this song, had passed away. I’m deeply saddened that such a light has been lost. Andrea was truly a musical force & wrote some of my favorite songs that touched the core of my soul. Thank you for sharing your music with me and the world angel. Thank you for giving me the gift of Better in time. Rest in love.”
Sending our thoughts, prayers, and support to all who knew and loved Andrea Martin.
