While America celebrated the Grammy Awards this previous Sunday, Sweden celebrated its personal music award ceremony, referred to as The Grammis, final Friday. During the gala reception, Avicii was awarded an honor posthumously. His father, Klas Bergling attended on the late producer’s behalf and accepted the award with a transferring speech.
Avicii first acquired a Grammi in 2012 for his, now legendary single, ‘Levels’. During the acceptance speech, Klas gave the viewers perception into who Tim was throughout his early life.
“Tim was a pleasant individual with humor and really severe, humble, and cussed as sin. When it got here to the music, he was on the verge of obsessed to succeed in the optimum he had imagined.
“He was a shy one that didn’t wish to be within the heart and he had a tough time with the official position. […] He had a must withdraw, and peace, and discover himself–one thing that many people in all probability acknowledge.”
Tim’s father spoke at size that whereas he’ll miss his son endlessly, he thanks his tens of millions of followers for retaining his legacy alive via their love of Avicii’s music. It appears surreal that Avicii left us over 9 months in the past already. While Avicii is now not with us, his father’s sentiment is spot on – Tim will stay endlessly via his breathtaking productions.
