"I missed you even while you were here. I will miss you infinitely more now that you're gone. Thank you for holding on as long as you did. I know you tried your best. You are free now." the 24-year-old star wrote to dad Joel Levesque alongside an adorable photo of the two together when she was a little girl.

The 'Leave (Get Out)' hit-maker, who rose to fame with her first hit album as a young teenager, grew up surrounded by music — her dad was a blues singer, her mom a church vocalist. JoJo made reference to her father's talent in her sweet, sad tribute to him.
