I did not know him personally, but I could tell Joshua was a beautiful person with a beautiful voice. I found out about his passing while looking to see if he did more music other than his great song with his Uke from the movie Shallow Hal. I wish he had done more music, as I would have bought his albums. RIP Joshua.

To the family and friends of Joshua . Please accept my condolences at this time . Death is one of the hardest thing for us to deal with. Even though it may be difficult to read anything at this time,take comfort in knowing you are never alone. It may be hard to express yourself, your concerns , your fears. But take time to rely on Jah for the needed strength and comfort he will continue to sustain you, while continuing to give you the needed push to get through.
