The Chainsmokers Reflect On the Importance of Kindness Following Fan's Passing
Music has the ability to touch our lives in profound ways, by giving us lyrics and melodies that we can hum along to in moments of joy as well as enable us to feel some of the most deep-feeling emotions through difficult times.
For musicians, fan interaction can also have a strong emotional impact knowing that their music directly affects the lives of the audiences who queue up in line for hours just to see their favorite artists. This was the case for EDM duo The Chainsmokers who recently reflected on a deeply touching, if not incredibly sorrowful moment with a young fan and his family.
The Chainsmoker's Alex Pall took to Twitter to share his his deep-rooted feelings after hearing the unfortunate news of a young fan's passing after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
There is so much in our lives that we cannot control, but one thing that is directly in our power is the way that we treat every person that we interact with. An act of kindness, no matter how big or how small has the power to contribute positivity in the world around us. Cherish each moment with friends, family, and loved ones because the future isn't guaranteed.
