Singer Melissa Etheridge’s 21-year-old son has passed away.

The singer’s team confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: “We’re sad to inform you that Melissa’s son Beckett passed away and there will not be a Concerts From Home show today.”

Etheridge has been hosting Facebook Live singalongs since March.

No further comment has been made. It’s unclear at this time what led to his death.

The star and her ex-partner Julie Cypher welcomed Beckett in 1998 via artificial insemination. They also have a daughter named Bailey Jean in 1997, but split in 2000. Etheridge also has 13-year-old twins who she shares with former partner, Tammy Lynn Michaels.
