Klas Bergling

It’s been quite sometime since Avicii has left a huge void in the music world. Still, we can’t erase his memories off our minds and hearts, as his music left a deep imprint on our lives in general.

He now has received a posthumous award at the largest music awards ceremony of Sweden, the Rockbjörnen. The award was presented for the single ‘Without You’ which was chosen as the song of the year. Voted by numerous fans, it sure left a strong statement as to how much they miss him even today.

The highlight of this was that his father, Klas Bergling accepted the revered award on behalf of his beloved Tim on the 15th of August. This was his first public appearance since Tim’s death.

“I am happy to have been given the opportunity to be here tonight to say thank you for this amazing award that you have rewarded Tim and Sandro and to everyone of you who have voted for ‘Without You,’ an amazing song.”, he said.

“But also, and perhaps foremost to say thank you for all and every amazing tribute you have given Tim and his music. From all his fans and others, from churches, schools, festivals and so many more. It’s been almost incomprehensible and it has warmed our hearts, all of the family, during this hard time, so again a big thank you to everyone.”, Klas continued.

As proud a father as he is, we are delighted that he bagged this award. We still love you Tim.
