MUSIC NEWS: Kulick Re-Records ‘H’ In Remembrance Of Alexandria Sienkiewicz
Kulick has revealed a re-recorded version of H, in remembrance of Alexandria Sienkiewicz who lost her struggle with heroin addiction five years ago.
The 23-year old wrote a poem about her struggles with heroin, shortly before she accidentally overdosed on Fentanyl on 2nd April 2016. Kulick then turned her poem into a song he called H, which was originally released on YouTube in 2017.
Now, H has been re-recorded by Kulick to commemorate the five-year anniversary of Sienkiewicz’s death.
“We wanted to make a better version of the song and release it on all platforms instead of only YouTube so that it could reach more people going through a similar situation,” he explains. “I wanted to share the message of love and support instead of the stigma that is associated with ‘drug addicts’. I wanted to give Alexandria’s poem about her struggle with addiction a voice. This is a story about heroin first and foremost, but anyone who has ever felt depression, anxiety, addiction, experienced negative self-talk, or internal struggle will be able to feel the power of Alexandria’s words.”
“Five years ago we lost our daughter Alexandria which feels like yesterday but the realisation of knowing the last time we spoke to her and said I love you was five years ago is heart-breaking,” adds Sienkiewicz’s mother. “We were so uneducated looking back, on substance use disorder and embarrassed to ask five years ago but we are happy with the changes we helped to make. By bringing substance use disorder out of the darkness and into the light has helped so many people save themselves. Our hope is that Alex’s words and Kulick’s music inspires more individuals to reach out for help and more parents to get educated in this matter of alcohol and drugs, that is what our daughter wanted.”
The re-recorded version of H is available to stream or purchase HERE.
Kulick, who is from the same small town as Sienkiewicz, worked with her family on a documentary about her story, which you can watch below.
