Steve Angello made a name for himself first, as a member of the now defunct Swedish House Mafia and now, as a successful solo act. While DJ superstardom conjures images of hefty paychecks and luxurious lifestyles, Angello's recent act of kindness reminds us that he is a human being with a big heart.

When Angello learned that a fan was in need, he didn't hesitate to step up and help. The fan was trying to raise funds for his daughter's liver transplant via a gofundme campaign.

“At two months old, Allie was diagnosed with the liver disease Biliary Atresia. If left untreated, children with this disease do not typically make it past 2-3 years old. Her only chance at survival is liver transplantation. Kaiser has transferred Allie to Children's Hospital LA. They have evaluated her and she is currently being placed on the liver transplant list. Please help us fund the money to cover her medical expenses.”

After learning about their story, Angello immediately donated $5,000 to the cause.

It’s a heartwarming story that shows Angello’s dedication to his fans and willingness to give back. Of course, the fan who received the generous donation was more than grateful and moved by Angello's act of love.

More tears of joy. One of my absolute favorite DJ's @steveangello , formerly of Swedish House Mafia, has just made this life changing donation to Allie's cause. From every fiber of my being, thank you Steve.
