Sad….we know a lot of people grew up to this song.

Canadian singer Raffi Cavoukian met Kavna, a beluga whale, in 1979 and the meeting had a big impact on his life.

Cavoukian created Baby Beluga, a song about an imaginary whale in the ocean that inspires all of life.

Regrettably, Kavna, at 46 years old, has passed way.

A necropsy revealed that cancerous lesions were found in Kavna's body, whose health had been deteriorating for months.

Cavoukian said the following about his fallen friend:

He had a profound impact on me. [Kavna] came out of the water and placed a gentle, graceful kiss on my cheek and I couldn't stop talking about it for a couple of weeks!

That encounter inspired the song "Baby Beluga," and as I like to say, the song set the whale free.

Kavna died at the Vancouver Aquarium.

RIP Kavna.
