Avicii Receives Posthumous Swedish Grammy, His Father Accepts On His Behalf

While America celebrated the Grammy Awards this past Sunday, Sweden celebrated its own music award ceremony, called The Grammis, last 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 moving speech.

Avicii first received a Grammi in 2012 for his, now legendary single, ‘Levels'. During the acceptance speech, Klas gave the audience insight into who Tim was during his formative years.

“Tim was a friendly person with humor and very serious, humble, and stubborn as sin. When it came to the music, he was on the verge of obsessed to reach the optimal he had imagined.

“He was a shy person who didn’t want to be in the center and he had a hard time with the official role. […] He had a need to withdraw, and peace, and find himself–something that many of us probably recognize.”

Tim's father spoke at length that while he will miss his son forever, he thanks his millions of fans for keeping his legacy alive through their love of Avicii's music. It seems surreal that Avicii left us over 9 months ago already. While Avicii is no longer with us, his father's sentiment is spot on – Tim will live forever through his breathtaking productions.
