US rapper Mac Miller was tragically found dead at the age of 26 at his Los Angeles home yesterday.

Fans across the world have been paying tribute - and sharing some of their favourite performances by the young artist.

Miller's last UK performance was at the huge One Love Manchester charity concert alongside his then girlfriend Ariana Grande.

During the show, which took place at Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford stadium last year, he and Grande performed a duet of their song 'The Way'.

Miller then performed his own song, 'Dang!'.

The concert was for a benefit gig to raise money for the victims, families and relatives of those who were injured and killed after a terrorist attack on Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena in May 2017.

The attack claimed 22 lives and Grande assembled an all star line up for the emotional June 4 gig.

Mac Miller - real name Malcolm James McCormick - was in a relationship with Grande for around two years before they split in May 2018.

It is thought Miller's use of drugs and history of mental health issues were a contributing factor in both his split with Grande, and his death - which has been reported as being caused by an overdose.

He was found in an unresponsive state by police and ambulance personnel yesterday before being declared dead just before midday.

Miller had recently released his fifth full-length studio album, Swimming. Grande has yet to comment on the death of her ex-partner.

Miller's family released a statement yesterday that read: "Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,

"He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time."

Tributes have poured in from around the world of music today, with stars such as Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliott, Liam Gallagher, and Pharrell Williams offering their condolences.

Fellow rapper J. Cole used his tribute to offer assistance to anyone struggling with mental health and addiction problems.


He said: "This is a message for anybody in this game that's going through something. If you don't feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem if you need an ear to vent to. If you uncomfortable talking to people around you. Please reach out to me."
