The 34th annual Video Music Awards that took place at the ending of August gave us some amazing, memorable performances from artists like Pink, Fifth Harmony, Demi and Shawn Mendes.
All of these artists and more rocked the stage at the VMA’s this year, but maybe one of the most memorable and powerful moments from this year’s edition was Logic’s performance alongside fellow artists Khalid and Alessia Cara.
The 27-year-old rapper and record producer amazed the audience with his song entitled 1-800-273-8255. If you watched the VMAs this year, then you already know the name of the song and the song itself have a powerful meaning.
The song encourages those who have suicidal thoughts to seek help and remember that they are not alone. The name of the song is actually the number of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and with this performance, Logic wanted to inspire hope and show that there’s always a solution. No matter what, you have to hang on.
The lyrics of the song are extremely poignant and impactful. Music has always helped people through difficult times, and this makes no exception. Please share this video with others. You never know who needs help.
