YouTuber AJ Rafael is an amazing musical talent who can touch hearts with his songs and who inspires with the music he makes. But his journey has had challenges, and he has had to overcome great loss – losing his dad, who was (and still is) his greatest inspiration and much of the reason he found music, and stuck with it.

A beautiful tribute to his dad, a sad story, but also one of strength and inspiration.
