David Schlusselberg, 27, lost his mother to breast cancer when he was a child. Today, he launched his first single, "I Miss Her," in order to raise awareness about the illness. "Through the hard times, music has always been my way of coping," he said.

Though Schlusselberg identifies as an Orthodox Jew, he intentionally left any religious references out of the song. "I wanted the song to be inclusive and relatable to anyone who has gone though a similar experience," he said.
