On a breezy Saturday night in Los Angeles, Marshmello, G-Eazy, Tyga, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor, Charlie Puth, Khalid, NF, and Ella Mai, a stacked lineup of crowd-pleasing artists, performed during the annual “We Can Survive” concert, put on my 97.1 AMP. This event, designed to raise funds for YSC, an organization dedicated to helping young women diagnosed with breast cancer. The crowd, filled with families and people of all ages, was enthusiastic and upbeat, waving light-up glow sticks for the entire show.

The night opened with Ella Mai, who had recently released her self-titled debut album. She charmed the crowd with her smash-hit “Boo’d Up” and new singles like “Naked”. NF brought up the intensity with a stage setup that mimicked the cover of his album Perception. With video footage, strobe lights, and a giant metal cage on stage, NF captured the crowd with his hits like “Let You Down” and “Lie”. Next up was Khalid, who bounced around stage with his signature youthful charm, letting the crowd take the lead on many of his hits like “8TEEN” and “Young, Dumb, and Broke”. Charlie Puth followed, stunning the crowd with a surprise Keytar performance during the song “How Long”. Meghan Trainor, who had performed in the 2016 concert, performed her cheery pop hits like “Me Too”. Shawn Mendes’ arrival on stage queued an immediate reaction from the younger fans in the audience, and the singer did not disappoint, playing hits like “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” and a cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”. The singer also brought out Khalid for a soulful rendition of “Youth”. Tyga surprised the crowd by bringing on Chris Brown during his set that contained fan favorites like “Rack City” and “SWISH”. G-Eazy, who had also performed at “We Can Survive” 2016, performed “Him&I” and brought out upcoming artist Anthony Russo for the track “Rewind”. Marshmallo closed the show, with the most elaborate lightshow of lineup, bringing up crowd energy with his EDM mixes and new song “Happier”.

We Can Survive 2018 covered all bases this year, from rap to pop, with artists eager to contribute to the good cause and share their energy with the audience. The evening ended with fireworks, a strong end to a powerful event.
