August 29, 2017

With the music world still reeling from the losses of rockers Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards was a fitting place for rapper Logic to deliver one of his most powerful songs.

Logic's inspiring track off his latest album Everybody delivers a message of hope for those struggling. The track's title, while never spoken in the song, is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Through his words, Logic sends a message to those listening that someone is always there. Lines like "I want you to be alive / You don't gotta die today" ring out like a real life call to the lifeline. Logic's message is clear and direct: there is always someone who will listen. Check out the moving live performance from the show.

The music video itself features a star-studded cast, including Don CheadleCoy StewartLuis Guzmán, and more. In it, the main character struggles with his sexuality and acceptance, something Logic has also been very open about -- acceptance. Logic, who his biracial, frequently raps about growing up not being accepted by either race. Watch the powerful music video, which is quickly approaching 16 million views on YouTube:
