    The singer revealed that four years ago, a doctor told her she couldn't have children. An Instagram user by the name of Luke captured the heartfelt moment on camera:

    "So four years ago, I was told that I couldn’t have children, and it’s OK," said Jessie to the crowd. "I’m going to have children, trust me."

    "When the doctor told me, my reaction was, ‘Oh hell nooooooo.’”

    "And I don’t tell you guys for sympathy, I’m one of millions of women, and of men, that have gone through this and will go through this, and it can’t become something that defines us."

    "But, I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and of sadness."

    "But, also to give myself joy and give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard.”

    Here are some of the touching lyrics to "Four Letter Word":

    I pray I get the chance to bloom/I can be a six letter word, but four letter word is you. B-A-B-Y/This just changed my life/Can't believe I, can't believe I, can't believe I don't have time.

    Jessie hoped to bring a sense of community for anyone else dealing with infertility and child loss, ending her message with the sentiment: "Please know you are not alone in your pain."
