From being molested, dealing with mental health issues, and a sordid history with drugs, Quindon Tarver's recent and violent death echoes what many could claim was a tragic life.

Kevin Tarver, the uncle to child singer from 'Romeo + Juliet" Quindon Tarver, revealed that his nephew had passed away due to a car crash. His uncle implied that it was tragic as the singer was just about to make a musical comeback.

Tarver was only 38 years old when he died. Throughout his life, he had great success, such as his role in "Romeo + Juliet" but he also faced many dark times involving alleged molestation and the brutal death of his cousin, to name two.

COME BACK QUINDON

His uncle stated that Tarver had passed away in the crash on President George Bush Turnpike street. Digging deeper into the dreadful passing of the famous singer, Kevin expressed:

"But his focus was on his music. He was getting ready to make his comeback."

Continuing, he disclosed to the public that Tarver had been busy with a project. He sadly stated that his nephew's creation would have been divulged for everyone to hear this coming year.

FAMOUS YET FALLING

Tarver began his singing career at a very young age, singing in choirs from age four and appearing in some famous music videos. He eventually went on to perform songs for the late 90's "Romeo + Juliet" movie.

Tarver took to his music, using his talent for melodies to fight against police brutality.

The celebrity also appeared in two of the "American Idol" competitions not long after his role in "Romeo + Juliet." Unfortunately, despite all this success, the singer faced difficult times, alleging that he was molested.

DARK TIMES

Speaking about his alleged molestation, which he claimed occurred within the music industry, Tarver purported that it caused his music career to come to a halt. In his own words, he expressed:

“I was hurting. I had been molested, I had been raped, I had lost my career, which is what I had dreamed of doing all my life."

He then returned to his hometown in Texas. Unfortunately, his demons returned with him, causing the talented music artist to dabble deeply in suicidal ideation, alcohol, and drugs.

FIGHTING POLICE BRUTALITY

Beyond fighting his inner trauma and darkness, Tarver took to his music, using his talent for melodies to fight against police brutality. This came after his cousin Darius Tarver died due to police officers shooting him.

In honor of this devastating death, he released a single called "Stand Our Ground." This single was released almost exactly one year after his cousin passed away.

Of course, Tarver is not the only music artist to address police brutality and racial issues. Last year, country and pop star Maren Morris released a song that specifically spoke to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

The song was called "Better Than We Found It" and was co-written among four people, including Morris herself. The music clip shows many harrowing scenes, such as a man of color's life being taken by the police.
