Logic’s VMA Performance of 1-800-273-8255 Was a Huge Step for Mental Health Awareness

If you missed the VMA’s, Logic brought the whole audience in attendance as well as those watching at home directly to feel city.

Not only did Logic offer a powerful performance filled with numerous displays of 1-800-273-8255 (the national suicide hotline) along with other powerful message like “You are not alone”, he also hit everyone with an influential speech after the performance was over.

“I want to thank you all for giving me a platform to talk about something that mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about: mental health, suicide, depression anxiety…”

Let’s just stop there… when have you ever heard someone say something like this on national television? Let alone a rap artist…

I’ll wait…

Anyway, this was a huge step for mental health awareness, and I want to personally thank Logic for using his platform to spread awareness to such an important topic. If you haven’t seen the performance, here is the full clip for you to watch below.
