Legendary musicians, singers, and actors have passed away recently and we want to pay tribute to them. Some were too young to leave us, while others lived long productive lives, what they had in common was the impact they had on us that will remain in our hearts. They leave behind a legacy for the ages.
Swedish DJ-producer Avicii died of suicide at 28. His family shared a statement about the musician’s death, saying, “He really struggled with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.” Avicii was a central part of the EDM movement that dominated the early 2010s. His 2011 track, “Levels” became a crossover smash that topped the charts in dozens of countries. In 2013, he partnered with soul singer Aloe Blacc for “Wake Me Up,” which reached #4 on the Hot 100.
