Logic’s VMA Performance Was Emotional and Powerful

Logic’s VMA performance reminds us that Mental Illness is around us, and is not going anywhere. On the stage Logic, Alessia Cara and Khalid teamed up to deliver a message about Suicide Prevention.

The stage was plastered with the Phone Number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 1-800-273-8255. Towards the end of the performance, suicidal survivors stood around with “1-800-273-8522” and “You Are Not Alone” written on their shirts.

It was an emotional and passionate performance that brought people to their feet and put them through a series of emotions.

Logic finished with an even more powerful reminder.

“I just want to take a moment right now and thank you all so much for giving me a platform to talk about something that mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about,” he said. “Mental health, anxiety, suicide, depression and so much more that I talk about on this album. From racism, discrimination, sexism, domestic violence, sexual assault and so much more.”

This was reminding us that in an era of superficiality and chaos, we still have hope, and its our moral obligation to help those that are suffering.

Following with a call that he will fight for everyone and is looking for us to join him “I don’t give a (expletive) if you’re black, white or any color in between. I don’t care if you’re Christian, you’re Muslim, you’re gay, you’re straight — I’m gonna fight for your equality because I believe that we are all born equal, but we are not treated equal and that is why we must fight. We must fight for the equality of every man, woman and child regardless of race, religion, color, creed and sexual orientation.”
