Travis Scott, SZA, And Others Send Love To Mac Miller At Tribute Concert
While many of us were getting into the Halloween spirit, another portion of us was locked into the live-stream of Mac Miller’s Celebration of Life. The event took place in Los Angeles as Mac Miller’s family, friends, fans, and peers all piled into the Greek Theatre for a tribute concert featuring some of the industry’s leaders. It was an emotional night as everybody who took the stage had something to say about how Mac impacted their lives and careers. Some were more articulate than others as SZA perhaps said it best: “Without Mac, there would be no me. God bless you, we love you so much, Mac.”
It’s been difficult to accept that Mac is truly gone. After such an evolution in his sound, it’s sad to sink into reality to realize that we’ll never hear new music from him. Last night’s show helped many cope with their feelings as artists like Travis Scott got everybody into a zone with “Sicko Mode,” while John Mayer performed Mac’s “Small Worlds.” Performances from Chance the Rapper, Vince Staples, J.I.D., Ty Dolla $ign and others made for a memorable night that audience members won’t forget anytime soon. The fact that proceeds are going towards the Mac Miller Circles Fund is just the cherry on top.
Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life was truly a bittersweet moment. Check out some of the highlights below.
