Avicii was presented with a post-mortem award at the annual Swedish Grammy Galamisgalan.
The honorary Grammar father was awarded the late EDM superstar, Klaus Bergling, at the ceremony on 7 February. The beloved producer – previously known as Tim Bergling – received a Grammy award in 2012 for his 'Levels'.
In the months following the tragic death of Avicii in 28 April 2018, his father accepted a number of post-death awards on behalf of his son. At the Grammy Gala, he gave a heartfelt speech describing Tim as “friendly” and “very serious”. He said his son was “obsessed” when he came to his music and basically shy.
“We have received so much love and support from fans, music industry partners and friends,” he said. “His music is played in new forums and new interpretations. We are very proud of that… ”
“He needed to get back peace and get himself,” he said. “Something probably we recognize.”
Recently, the documentary was made, 'Avicii: True Stories', which was re-released on Netflix. This film follows the rapid rise of Avicii and the incredible toll of famous people and the industry's pressure on both his mental and physical health.
