The Chainsmokers Show Much Love For Fellow Artist Avicii

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart the duo makes up the American DJ and production group the Chainsmokers. They were recently at The Billboard Music Awards, where thousands had come to see the performances and awards. The awards ceremonies took place in Las Vegas at the Grand Garden Arena. The duo was awarded the Top Dance/Electronic Act award. Among others that were at the gala with them was Halsey and Kelly Clarkson both famous singing sensations.

The ceremony had a somber tone when Avicci, a Swedish DJ and producer who was much loved in the community was honored. Avicci’s death was felt throughout the industry, struggling with mental problems and in the end taking his own life. The duo spoke about how Avicci had inspired and had touched so many artists inside EDM and that he meant so much to the community. Halsey who had sang on the Chainsmokers track “Closer” with Drew Taggart added “Everyone who worked with him would say he was such a joy and that makes his tragedy so much more painful. It is a reminder to all of us to be there and support and love our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental illness.”

When the Chainsmokers received their award, Taggart went on to say “We want to dedicate this award to Avicci, he is someone who made us believe that this is something we could do with our lives. Inspired all of us. Influenced our music and influenced pop music in general. He will be missed and I hope he has found peace.”

The Chainsmokers are a very talented duo and have had the honor of winning the 2017 Top Hot 100 Song. This year they presented the award to Luis Fonsi for “Despacito”. They have collaborated with Coldplay on the single “Something Just Like This” in February of 2017. The most recent work has been with Drew Love on the single “Somebody” which is building up to their next album release Sick Boy EP

Wengie’s Life Encourages Less Fortunate People

Wengie the YouTube sensation has done a Draw My Life vlog. In this vlog she talks about her life from where she was born to what she is doing today. She also discusses how the things she has experienced in her life, even though not all positive, have influenced her to become who she is today.

 

Wengie was born in China on January 9, 1986. Her father left China and moved to Melbourne Australia to make a better life for his family. He made $7 a week washing dishes and he would eat the leftover food because he didn’t earn enough money to eat. He eventually earned enough money to send for her mother and both of them worked extremely hard. Her mother worked night shifts cleaning to make ends meet. During this time Wengie stayed with her grandparents in China.

 

At the age of four, her parents had Wengie flown to Australia to be with them. When she arrived she cried because she didn’t recognize them and didn’t want to leave her grandfather. She had been away from them so long she didn’t really know them anymore.

Wengie continued to watch her parents work hard to get what they wanted. Because they didn’t have a lot of money most of the things they had were second hand. She said that she would make a lot of her toys herself. She made dolls out of tennis balls and made their clothes. By having to use her imagination it really helped bring out her creative side.

 

Later on both her parents were able to get better paying jobs in Sydney and were able to pay off their debt and buy a nice home. She said by watching her parents and growing up without much money, it showed her that it doesn’t matter how you grow up, you can make a life for yourself with dedication and hard work. So this influenced her and gave her confidence that she could do the same. She advises everyone not to be discouraged by how you grew up. Just embrace it and use it to your advantage to accomplish your dreams.
