The singer introduced Logic's hit song "1-800-273-8255" (titled after the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline), and used her time in the spotlight to encourage anyone contemplating suicide to reach out for help.

She added "It takes great courage to show the vulnerable side of being human. Whatever you are going through, however dark it may seem, there is an undeniable truth and strength in the fact that you are not alone".

After Logic performed with Alessia Cara and Khalid, the musicians invited suicide attempt survivors and loss survivors up to the stage. Each person's shirt on stage had the suicide prevention number and on the back it read, "You Are Not Alone".

The powerful performance ended with Logic thanking the VMA's for allowing him to share his message about mental health. The video of it has been circulating around the internet heavily and being praised by many for raising awareness on mental health and suicide.

If you are thinking or have thought about suicide, if you are anxious about someone you know, or if you just need someone to talk to, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or chat with their counselors online here.

"Here, now if you believe in this message - our message of peace, love, positivity, equality for all - I demand that you rise to your feet and applaud not only for yourselves, but for the foundation we all raised for children", said Logic to the audience.

'We must fight for the equality of every man, woman, and child regardless of race, religion, color, creed, and sexual orientation'. But taking literal action to manifest lyrics like "you should know you're attractive just the way you are", in front of the world, is the truest form of walking the walk we've seen since Alicia Keys went makeup-free.
