Last night, a vigil for Mac Miller was held at the Blue Slide Park section of Frick Park in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA.

Mac’s close friends and family also attended the emotional vigil, with Mac’s grandmother, Marcia Weiss, giving an especially heartfelt speech. “He would be so excited. He’d wish he was here, and I wish he was here,” she said. “But he loves you all , he loves Pittsburgh and everything that you have done for him.”

Meanwhile, Brandon McCaslin, whose Nightfall Records organized the vigil, announced that he’s working with nonprofits to raise awareness about addiction and mental health.
