  • This is a video of Chris Picco singing "Blackbird" by The Beatles to his 3-day-old son Lennon James Picco. Lennon was delivered by emergency C-section at only 24 weeks, and his mother died after the procedure. Lennon passed away the day after this video was filmed due to complications.

    From Chris:

    Dear friends, family, and supporters; it is with an unbelievably heavy heart that I write this. My little fighter, Lennon James Picco went to sleep in his daddy's arms late last night. He was surrounded by family, friends, and the best doctors, nurses and hospital staff in the world. He was dressed in an outfit that Ashley bought for him, with little guitars on it, and wrapped in a blanket made by a dear friend. I am so thankful for the four unforgettable days I got to spend with him. His mommy would have been so beyond joy to see him and to hold him, touch him, bathe him, sing to him - as I have had the privilege of doing. I have been so blessed and honored to love him before he was formed, to cherish him while mommy carried him, meet him face to precious face, and hold his perfect little body while we said "goodbye for now". There are no words, but I wanted to keep you updated, as your love and support has meant more than anything in the world. All you need is love.

    Our deepest and sincerest condolences go out to Chris and his loved ones. If you'd like to donate what you can to help Chris cover medical and other associated expenses, click here.
