“It is with great sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” a statement was sent to CNN hours ago. Avicii was one of the most successful touring DJs in the industry, working with artists including Madonna. “Wake Me Up” was his pop hit in 2013. In 2016, he retired from performing after a string of health issues, including acute pancreatitis. Fashion Chit-Chat Blog sends our condolences and prayers to the family at this difficult time.
