On July 9th, Ugonna "Iggy" Igweatu passed away, having suffered an asthma attack. Just hours before he went, he recorded a song with his good friend Jamie van Dyck. Jamie shared the untitled track ("Ugonna's Song") to remind people that Ugonna was still creating and inspiring right up through his final moments. After the track was posted to Reddit the next day, it was immediately upvoted to the front page, and over 125,000 people played the track. Ugonna's story and his talents have touched people all over the world, and he continues to serve as an inspiration for all.

Many people asked for more music, so we have pulled together a compilation of Ugonna's music from the past three years— a collection of his music, some live, some unfinished, but all inspiring.

ALL PROCEEDS will go to Ugonna's family.

Track Name: Ugonna's Song
The shades are open
But my eyes are closed
And the sun wakes me up
Good morning to me
And the sun wakes you up
Good morning to you

In a minute or two
I hit the streets
But this cup of tea doesn't warm me
She tried to warn me
Please don't go
It'll rain before you know

If van Gogh could paint my picture now
It'd be spots of black, spots of brown
And a whole lotta blue
That's how I'm feeling too
I think I should tell you

It's not working out, I thought that you should know
I wrote you a letter, it's under your pillow
Lest I make this worse by hanging around
Sometimes it's best to give up when you're falling down
I hate to sound insensitive 'cause you know that I care
But your heart is never broken, it's just in repair
And I've been fixing mine this whole time
And losing my way and losing my mind when I'm

Feeling blue
When im feeling blue

She opens up the letter, and reads it to herself
When there's no one around, just a picture on the shelf
She reaches for her phone and I get a call
I look for an escape, but there's nowhere at all
I hate to let it ring, cuz she knows I'm around
I lift it to my ear, my heart hits the ground
And then she says the words that I've been waiting for for so long
And I wonder how I could have been so wrong when I'm

Feeling blue
When I'm feeling blue
When I'm feeling blue
