“This is going to be a very tough weekend for me, in fact extremely tough. I just
listened to Coolio’s songs and I am super-emotional. I just spoke to his son and his band
members. I’m going to get through this, but needed this tribute to Coolio to be very special,” Vanilla Ice said in a statement.

Donations to a fundraiser for Coolio’s family can be made here.

The livestream is presented courtesy of Universal Attractions Agency and Lightstream Media, the multimedia production arm of Lightstream Presents.

“We have suffered unimaginable loss last week with the passing of Coolio. He was a true star and an integral part of the I Love The 90s tour,” UAA co-owner Jeffrey Epstein said in a statement. “In his honor, we and Lightstream Presents will continue to celebrate his impact on the industry and the success of his career this Sunday at The Haute Spot.”
