Well-known R&B singer-songwriter 6LACK recently expressed his support for a fan who wanted to mark the end of their cancer treatment, demonstrating his commitment to his fan base.
A tweet captured at the beginning of the video clip read, “Okay so since @6BLACK is active rn.. Can you please perform Outside at your Detroit show? Nov 2 will my first day that I’m done cancer treatment and my fav song by my fav artist would be the best way to kick off a new chapter of my life.”
The video then cuts to 6Black performing his Detroit gig, delivering on the request. “So, I’ma do one verse from one song I’ve never performed my whole life—not ever,” he began.
“This was not in the set but I spoke to somebody on the internet who just got through cancer treatment if I’m not mistaken. So tonight I want to celebrate life. I want to dedicate this song to you. I told you I gotchu,” he expressed.
6Lack has a history of charitable acts, including a collaboration with Mental Health America of Los Angeles and BetterHelp in 2021 to provide resources and therapy sessions to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students in need.
At the time, he posted on Instagram, “The last few years have been pretty tough on the brain, heart, and spirit. I’m blessed enough to have access to mental health resources and a support system of friends and family, but I recognize that not everyone from my community is that fortunate.”
“I wanted to do my part to help create a support system for others to start their mental health journey, and so I’ve partnered with MHALA & BetterHelp to help destigmatize the conversation, and provide resources to those who need it most — our youth. Tap in and see if there’s anything that speaks to you, or for anyone you know.”
