I Can’t Fix You (Date Released: July 12, 2013)
This sentimental number from Sasha holds an emotional history from one of the singer-actress’ friends. Sasha shares that the song is all about a friend of hers who has been struggling with addiction.

“I wanted to save this person. I wanted to fix them. And I couldn’t. And it came down to me realizing that, because I couldn’t do that, all I could do was love them and support them, and try to keep them accountable.”
Ten percent of the sales for Pieterse’s song went to supporting the non-profit organization’s life-saving services.
