Matthew West's teenage daughter lost a friend to suicide, so they decided to write a song in memory of her. 

"I hope this song will be a reminder to us all to be kind to each other and speak love. You never know when it might make all the difference," says West on Facebook.

September is U.S.A's National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The father-daughter duo is bringing light to the issue as it hits home. 

"I wanted to release a special version of 'Too Young Too Soon' featuring Lulu in honour of her friend Sam."
