“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” said Karen Meyers. “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.”
“He was pure artistry — constantly creating, seeking, and discovering new ways to be both a source of inspiration and catalyst for new artists. We were fortunate, not only to work with Malcolm and watch his music evolve, but to witness his own personal evolution that included a strong focus on building bridges and opening doors for anyone and everyone he encountered. We hope his ambitions to bring people together and to create new opportunities will continue to live through the MMCF. We know Malcolm would be appreciative and proud of the thought and care that is going into making the MMCF a reality, so thank you to all who are selflessly helping this come to life.
