posted by Danasia Johnson - 

Celebrities, families, and fans alike all continue to grieve after the death of such a well-loved soul like Mac Miller. 

  The record label NightFall Records will be bringing everyone together today in remembrance of Mac and to celebrate such a beautiful life.  The art-filled vigil will be held tonight and opened to the public at the city's Blue Slide Park starting @ 5 PM ET.  The playground was well loved by Mac himself and it even inspired his acclaimed debut album Blue Slide Park back in 2011.

The event description is as follows: 

"We would like to bring the city together in full force for this legendary icon.  Mac deserves to be sent off with an evening of celebrating his life, discussing his struggles, and remembering his stories; most importantly for his iconic work that brought joy into the lives of everybody who listened. We are welcoming all artists to come and paint, create, draw, live tribute art for this event. 

Many have been affected by the loss of Mac and everyone has been doing their best to keep their heads up. J. Cole shed a few tears for Mac at his KOD tour performance  &  Childish Gambino had some heartfelt words to say for Mac and everyone still hurting: "I just wanna say: I love you, Mac, and I just want to tell you that I love you."
