Logic performed on the 2017 MTV video music awards with Khalid and Alessia Cara on August 27, 2017.

Adding on Senior Caitlyn Radel says,  “Suicide prevention is really important and the song really does kinda help with that, i think because it really shows emotion…it really does bring awareness.  It tells everyone that this is a problem and we need to solve it.”
