Cheryl mourns the tragic death of her ‘Soldier’

Yesterday saw the devastating news break that Alouder and Soldier Kimberley Szostak had sadly passed away at the age of just 23.

The young performing arts student and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini superfan’s death came as a shock to many in the ‘Soldier’ fanbase and Cheryl herself was also left heartbroken by the sad news.

Cheryl took to Twitter to share her grief writing: I am so so sad to learn of the passing of @KimBBBERLEY this morning. My heart goes out to her family and friends. Sweet dreams angel R.I.P.

The kind hearted singer also shared a touching  tribute on Instagram. Including a photo of Kimberley, Cheryl captioned the picture with the touching words: Today we lost one our most beautiful, funny and special souls. As well as a big part of our GA/soldier family. You were taken far too soon. I adore you Kimberley! You will be sorely missed and I will never forget your love, loyalty and support. I love you. Rest in peace.

Kimberley was a dedicated and loyal fan and she will be forever missed in the fanbase, whether people knew her personally or not her loss is still felt throughout the ‘Soldier’ family.
