Brand New: Marsha Ambrosius tells emotional story in "Without You" feat. Ne-Yo

Marsha Ambrosius, the songbird who made up half of the smooth and sultry duo "Floetry", is pleasing our ears again with her most recent release, "Without You".

The song features Ne-Yo, and the video reflects upon her experience of sexual abuse, which she suffered as a child - by an older man.

In the video, Ne-Yo is her boyfriend - who tries to console her - but meets an obstacle whenever he tries to get close. Marsha seemed to be clinging to the past. Ne-Yo (who was also her child-hood friend and support) helps her to heal as he destroys images that bring back the pain. The video shows just how important it is to face the pain and move on.

The lyrics though, have the artists holding nothing back and expressing raw feelings with uncommon expletives - at least for this genre of music. The song is definitely true to the cause, but is not for an immature audience.

Watch the video and see the story. It pulls at the heartstrings and you may just develop a tear or two.

According to Marsha, "Writing goes down and if I don't get it off of my chest I'll be somewhere in a hole crying my eyes out about something that is real to me and some things that I know someone else is going through. You can be free form. It's freeing."

Marsha's album, "Friends & Lovers", which features from Ne-Yo and Alicia Keys, is due in 2014.

Marsha is a positive force in music and always tells a true story which is often relatable and healing. She also touches on topics that society tends to deny or mask.

Check out the video - support Marsha Ambrosius, she is a true talent.
