Tim Bergling (1989 - 2018), better known as aviciiHe was one of the most successful producers and DJs of recent times.

His musical career began in 2008, with just 18 years, when he remixed the song of the video game of Commodore 64, Lazy jones. After several years creating themes for video games, he signed his first contract with the European label EMI Music Publishing, making the leap to international fame. In 2013 he was awarded "Best electronic artist" by the MTV EMA.
Bergling also became fully involved in a charity dedicated to alleviating world hunger. He donated $ 1 million to Feeding America, a charity to help distribute more than 2 million school meals throughout Africa. He also supported campaigns against human trafficking and violence in the streets.
Unfortunately, from a young age he began to have health problems, and in January 2012 he was hospitalized for 11 days in New York City with acute pancreatitis caused by excessive alcohol consumption. In 2014 he underwent surgery and both his appendix and gallbladder were removed. In 2016, Bergling's health deteriorated and he retired from the live performance.
Avicii died on April 20, 2018 in Oman, at the age of 28 years. He did not immediately release any cause of death, but on April 26, his family published an open letter stating that Bergling "really had problems with meaning, life, happiness. He couldn't go on anymore. He wanted to find the peace".
