Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life will be livestreamed on a variety of streaming platforms on Oct. 31, starting at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT
Fans across the globe will get their chance to honor Mac Miller this week.
On Monday, the late musician’s parents and brother, along with his management team, announced that the “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life” tribute concert will be livestreamed for all of Miller’s fans who couldn’t make it to Los Angeles for Wednesday’s show on Oct. 31.
The event will also coincide with the launch of a new charity, The Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF), which seeks to provide programming, resources and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognize their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building; net proceeds from the concert will be donated to the MMCF.
“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers, said in a statement released earlier this month.
“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,” the statement continued. “He was a caring, loving human with a smile that could light up the sky and a soul that was out to make the world a kinder place and the MMCF will continue to do just that.”
