Carmela Wallace revealed on Wednesday that she is releasing the Live Free 999 fund, which will support programs that help youths with dependency issues, stress and anxiety, and anxiety.
She’s hoping that in setting up the fund, she can build on the tradition her child, real name Jarad Higgins, left. He passed away of an unexpected drug overdose last December at the age of21
“Young people around the world were truly touched by Jarad’s music because he spoke to issues and situations in his music that resonated with them so deeply,” she stated in a declaration. “I was aware of his struggles with addiction, anxiety, and depression; we had many conversations about his challenges with these issues. I know he truly wanted to be free from the demons that tormented him. I made the decision upon his death that I was going to share his struggles with the world with the objective of helping others.”
Wallace concluded: “It is my desire to help those who are hurting by providing access to education, prevention, and treatment for opioid and other forms of drug addiction. It is my hope that Live Free 999 will help people just as Jarad’s music has and will continue to touch lives for years to come.”
The fund will get additional assistance from Grade A and Interscope Records.
