Tyler recently lost his sister Ariel Jasper and his 1-year-old nephew Noah Josiah Brown in a tragic accident. A few months ago, Ariel and her son Noah were struck by an 18-wheeler truck and died on the spot. It was a difficult season for their family and Tyler became the rock to keep his family strong.
Music has been his way of comfort and expressing his grief. During his audition on American Idol, he is dedicating his performance to his nephew. He sang Whitney Houston’s “I Believe In You And Me,” a song he used to sing to Noah to put him to sleep.
