Music story of 2022: Aitch dedicates song to his sister
Aitch has said a particular track off his first studio album Close To Home, is a particular favourite because it’s about his younger sister Gracie, who was born with Downs Syndrome.
The rapper credited the song on his Instagram page in a special video saying: “Track 14, My G- This one’s straight from the heart. For my sister Gracie, the most perfect girl I’ve ever met. Life wouldn’t be the same without you kid and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Go live your best life mate and enjoy every minute.”
Aitch (real name Harrison James Armstrong) revealed he sat down to write a heartwarming song dedicated to his family and his sister.
The video to My G, which includes photos of his sister, starts with a message from Aitch which reads: “This song is dedicated to Gracie Armstrong. You have the biggest heart in the world! Don’t change for no one. Love you kid x.”
In a past interview with GQ the rapper said: “Years ago, my dad told me to make a song about her.
“He told me to rap about something that means something, and the only thing that means something is my family.”
Aitch teamed up with Ed Sheeran and producer Fraser T Smith who asked him to write a track that ‘means something’ special to him.
Unsurprisingly fans have taken to social media expressing how much they love the song.
One wrote: “My G” by @OfficialAitch has me broken. It is about his little sister Gracie who has Down’s syndrome. The sweetest little song.”
Another tweeted: “Aitch writing a song about his sister has made me incredibly emotional.”
A third post read: “Don’t mind me, just bawling at Aitch’s new song for his sister with Down syndrome, it’s the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard.”
Aitch is an avid supporter of the football club Manchester United.
