Barry Gibb's Tribute, Emotional Video for Robin Gibb

The sole surviving member of the Bee Gees, Barry Gibb, has commemorated his brother Robin with an emotional video this week.

Robin Gibb died Sunday at age 62 after a long battle against cancer, sparking worldwide mourning.

On Twitter, Barry Gibb provided a link to YouTube where he honored his brother. The video is entitled "Bodding," which was Robin's nickname, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

In it, never-before-seen home footage of the brothers Gibb features them as children. Played to sentimental music, the video also displays the group performing and traveling together.

Over 4-and-a-half minutes long, the video already accumulated over 11,000 views in just two days.

The Bee Gees' name originated after the Brothers Gibb and consisted of twin brothers Robin and Maurice as well as Barry. The iconic disco music group is well known for songs such as "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep is Your Love," and "Spirits Having Flown."

Maurice died in 2003 from a twisted colon, a condition caused by a congenital birth defect that Robin also shared.

Despite improving health, the legendary singer died at a London clinic surrounded by his second wife Dwina, sons Spencer and Robin-John, and daughter Melissa.

Barry was in the U.S. at the time of his brother's death Sunday. The news of Gibb's death swept across the internet and sent thousands of fans and fellow musicians into mourning.

"We have lost a truly brilliant musician today," wrote Justin Timberlake on his Twitter account. "One of my idols. My heart goes out to the Gibb family at this very sad time."

Piers Morgan posted on Twitter, "Very sad about #RobinGibb- top guy, wonderful singer, and one of Britain's greatest ever musical success stories. RIP."

"RIP Robin Gibb," posted British author Jackie Collins. "I always loved the BEE GEES. Special music."
