Last Friday, we received the sad news that DJ, Avicii died. His family released a statement, yesterday, alluding that he took his own life because he couldn’t deal with it anymore. Our thoughts are with his loved ones.
As you know, The Nicky Byrne Show holds a game everyday called You’re Some Laugh, where listeners have to guess the celebrity behind the laugh Nicky and Jenny are playing. The longer the listeners fail to guess the correct answer, the higher the prize money.
For many weeks, they had been playing Avicii’s laugh, but none of the listeners guessed correctly. Today, the show decided to donate all the money (€840) to Pieta House, who offers free, professional services across Ireland for people at risk of suicide & self-harm.
Very inspiring. Well done!
That laugh was from the late Tim Bergling, Avicii.
Today Nicky announced that we will be donating the prize money of €840 to @PietaHouse x
