Mac Miller tribute concert to be streamed live online

A video clip of Miller performing "Best Day Ever" played.

Late rapper Mac Miller was given a warm memorial from his music peers such as Pharrell Williams and John Mayer yesterday. As SZA put it, "Without Mac, there would be no me". Thank you for sharing that with us.

Mayer played Mac's "Small Worlds" and told the crowd he was "really nervous" doing it. Of the late rapper, he said, "Thank you for the music you made, the opportunities you provided me with, but overall the friendships you built".

Miller, who died in September at his home in the San Fernando Valley at the age of 26, was widely mourned by the music community, who remembered him as a talent lost too soon and a kind and generous individual. It's wonderful. The world misses you bro, rest easy.

The event, which also included performances by the likes of Miguel, Vince Staples, Earl Sweatshirt, SZA, Thundercat, Ty Dolla $ign, and more, featured a number of pre-recorded videos of celebs paying tribute to Miller with moving messages, including Donald Glover, Pharrell, Jason Sudeikis, Lil Wayne, and Tyler, the Creator.

In addition to livestreaming the event, numerous streaming platforms will offer the ability for viewers to donate to The Mac Miller Circles Fund, part of The Pittsburgh Foundation, supporting youth arts and community-building programs.

"Thank you to all the artists, friends and partners for helping to bring this all to honor of wonderful Malcolm. who is in all of our hearts", she wrote in the caption.

His mother Karen Meyers previously: "The support we've experienced is evident in this awesome line-up and is a testament to Malcolm's incredible life". His father, brother and I are beyond thankful to everyone who is working to make this concert happen along with every fan and every friend for continuing to support Malcolm and his vision.
