Miley Cyrus left her fans swept with emotion as she paid a beautiful tribute to Taylor Hawkins.
The singer took the stage for the headlining slot at Lollapalooza in Brazil on Saturday night in Brazil, where the Foo Fighters were scheduled to perform on Sunday.
But after drummer Taylor was tragically found dead in his hotel room in Bogota, Colombia yesterday, Miley vowed to make sure he’s still a part of the event.
The former Hannah Montana star shared a picture of Taylor sitting behind his drum kit with a big smile on her face to her Instagram Story and wrote, “This is how I will always remember you…
“My show tomorrow is dedicated to Taylor Hawkins”
At her show tonight, Miley sat on stage and sang her track Angels Like You in front of a huge backdrop with the same picture of Taylor, in a video recorded by her sister Brandi.
“Angel like you for my angel,” she wrote, tagging the late star’s account.
Foo Fighters have canceled their tour after the sudden death of their drummer.
They were in Bogota for the Estéreo Picnic festival and were then supposed to go to Lollapalooza.
Announcing the shocking news of Taylor’s death, a post on the band’s official Twitter page read: “The Foo Fighters family is devastated by the tragic and untimely loss of our beloved Taylor Hawkins.
“His musical spirit and infectious laugh will always be with us.
“Our hearts go out to his wife, children and family and we ask that their privacy be treated with the utmost respect at this unimaginably difficult time.”
According to Colombian officials, Taylor had traces of 10 different drugs in his body when he died.
In a statement issued after an initial autopsy, Colombian prosecutors confirmed that toxicology tests found 10 types of substances, including marijuana and tricyclic antidepressants.
They added that further studies would need to be conducted to clarify the facts of his death.
According to health chiefs in Bogota, he is said to have suffered a heart attack, which was probably the result of an overdose.
