Seven weeks after his death, Mac Miller’s legacy and music career were honored at his celebration of life concert.
The star, who died on Sept. 7 at age 26, was remembered by many of his famous friends and former collaborators including Action Bronson, Anderson.Paak, Chance the Rapper, Dylan Reynolds, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D, John Mayer, Miguel, Njomza, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Thundercat, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign and Vince Staples.
The tribute began with a collection of videos of Miller from his childhood, which highlighted his strong passion for music that began before he could even walk.
Following the performances of J.I.D, Njomza and Action Bronson, the audience’s attention was directed at a screen, which projected a series of shoutouts from Pusha T, Pharrell, Lil Wayne, A$AP Ferg and Tyler the Creator, who specifically recalled a time when Miller was the only person to laugh at his jokes.

Shortly after, John Mayer, 41, performed Miller’s “Small Worlds” from his fifth and final album Swimming.
Zane Lowe later took the stage asking the crowd to take a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre in which 11 were shot to death while celebrating Shabbat.
He then delivered a heartwarming speech about Miller and how he always said, “If you wanna know me the best chance is to listen to my music.”
Travis Scott, 26, concluded the show and as the lights went down, Miller himself, from a previous recording, was heard thanking everyone for coming.
