In the annals of lives cut too soon, Avicii is a powerful name. Though he managed to barely miss the 27 club, it made no difference in changing the fact that he likely had so much more to give in what would have been a legendary life. He died April 20, 2018 and left behind an inimitable legacy.
In death, he left behind the Tim Bergling Foundation, advocating for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency. His father, Klaus Bergling, has been instrumental in spreading a message of positivity and the memory of his son.
Today would have been Avicii’s 31st birthday. Nicky Romero, David Guetta, and more have posted remembrances of him today. Today also begins the Avicii Birthday Tribute for Mental Health Awareness on SiriusXM’s BPM channel, which happens to fall on Suicide Prevention Week. Read more about that here.
