311 Day celebrations are taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the first show on Saturday, 311 did a tribute performance to musicians that we’ve lost over the years. Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Chester Bennington, MCA, Tom Petty, Prince, Michael Jackson and many more were shown the love during “Wish You Were Here”.
Billboard reports that Talinda Bennington has a very special request for Linkin Park fans to honor her husband’s upcoming birthday.
The rock band’s frontman Chester Bennington would have turned 42 on March 20th. Talinda took to Twitter to ask fans that on his birthday, they post a photo of themselves holding up their hands with “I AM THE CHANGE” written on them.
The movement is part of her 320 Changes Direction initiative, launched after her husband’s suicide in July 2017. The organization aims to transform the culture and stigma surrounding mental health. Holding up “I AM THE CHANGE” hands symbolizes the five signs of emotional well-being: take care, check in, engage, relax and know.
To honor @ChesterBe Bday-I’m asking you to Change Direction. On March 20th,Post a pic holding up your hand 🤚, which symbolizes you know the 5 signs of emotional well-being. Write “I AM THE CHANGE” on your hand. Bcuz the change begins within ourselves https://t.co/bZ2yDAq3y1
