“Simone was an exceptional young talent and human being, and we are all devastated to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time.”

The 25-year-old’s fellow group members, Paula Van Oppen, Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada and Natasha Slayton also released a statement on the group’s Instagram page.

“Words cannot express the depth of our loss. Simone’s incredible talent was only surpassed by the size of her heart. We will carry her memory with us in everything we do.”
