“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing lineup and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” said Miller’s mother Karen Meyers in a statement. “His father, brother and I are beyond thankful to everyone who is working to make this concert happen along with every fan and every friend for continuing to support Malcolm and his vision. He was a caring, loving human with a smile that could light up the sky and a soul that was out to make the world a kinder place and the MMCF will continue to do just that.”
