You’ll always be loved, and will never be forgotten. Rest easy, Mac.
It’s been about seven-weeks since we lost the incredibly versatile and bright artist, Mac Miller. One of the industry’s most palatable talents, both musically and personally, Mac touched a wide array of people. From direct musical involvement–like producing the acclaimed Vince Staples mixtape, Stolen Youth–to indirect, Mac’s presence was omnipresent in the music landscape.
And although he departed this planet far too soon, his spirit manages to live on through his music and with the help of some friends.
Revealed on October 2nd, Mac’s contemporaries announced that they would be throwing a benefit concert in his honor. Titled A Celebration of Life, the benefit proceeds will go towards the Mac Miller charity, The Mac Miller Circles Fund.
Taking place at LA’s famed Greek Theatre, the concert paying homage to Mac will be taking place tonight. But if you can’t make it, don’t fret–there’s still a chance to view the show.
Tidal will be live-streaming the event, which is in partnership with Live Nation. Donations can be made through Tidal, Facebook, LiveXLive, and Twitter. To learn more about the charity, visit http://www.TMMCF.org.
The heavy hearts of Mac’s mourners persist to remain weighted, but it’s comforting to know that he will never be forgotten, and that his impact on music–both on fans and artists–will be honored in the best way how, in the way Mac would have wanted: through music.
Live stream the event by heading to Tidal; it will begin at 9:30P EST, 6:30P PST.
Rest easy, Mac. You were such a rarity–a true gem. You’ll always be loved, and will never be forgotten.
