I have never posted on tumblr before asking for a fundraiser or anything so not sure how this works.
Alysha Smith was the first friend I ever made growing up. We grew up two houses down from each other and have been friends since we were both around 4 years old. We went through life experiencing almost everything together and she is one of the few people I still remained close to after I moved over 5 states away. Alysha was the one out of the two of us who had all the artistic talent. She was trying to audition for the voice before she passed away. She was one of the people who even if we hadn’t spoken in months we could start back talking not missing a beat. It was Alysha who was always there for me and helped me with everything how ever she could. Any problem I had I came to her.
Now this is my turn. Alysha passed away in her sleep of causes still unknown December 2nd. Her family is far from well off and her mom has already had to bury one child who died in a car accident 4 years ago. For the funeral and all the experiences surrounding it the cost of over $6,000. The family has sent up a donation trying to get at least $2,000 dollars of it covered because anything helps.
I have seen people do post like this and ask before on tumblr and now I am trying too. Even if you could just reblog this to see if anyone else see’s it who might be willing to help it would be great. I just want to be able to help her and her family in any way I can because she is my best friend, and like a sister to me, and her family has always been there for me.
Thank you for everyone who even just reblogs this so others can see.

Oh man oh man oh man. 6 guys, and it FILLS THE SPACE. Luck of the architecture - and they know how to pull it off. Nothing is easy making vocal music in a space not built for it. I want to do this kind of thing - randomly perform multipart harmony in public spaces.
Holy hell. It makes you just want to sit still and listen with your whole body (oh god she’s waxing poetic about music again). No but really.
Someone recruit me to sing multipart harmony in public spaces please, I want to do things like this. The only thing better than close harmony is close harmony in acoustically phenomenal places. Can you even imagine?
The English lyrics are:
Listen, smith of the heavens, what the poet asks. May softly come unto me thy mercy. So I call on thee, for thou hast created me. I am thy slave, thou art my Lord.
God, I call on theeto heal me. Remember me, mild one, (or mild king. This is a pun on the word mildingur). Most we need thee. Drive out, O king of suns, generous and great, every human sorrow from the city of the heart.
Watch over me, mild one, Most we need thee, truly every moment in the world of men. send us, son of the virgin, good causes, all aid is from thee, in my heart.
