Post Malone is well-known for his introspective songwriting and diverse vocal styles. The artist has amassed a massive fanbase across the globe. Post Malone recently did a good deed for students who were in mourning after their principal died.
Malone made a video for students at Staten Island’s P.S. 56, The Louis Desario School. Phil Carollo, the principal, died suddenly last month at the age of 49, apparently from a heart attack. Phil’s widow, Erin, told TMZ that her husband was a huge Post Malone fan.
The family would take car rides and all they played was Post Malone while the couple and their children sang along. Phil would have turned 50 on Friday, so the school wanted to do something special for him. They held a carnival and asked Post to record a video tribute to Phil that could be shown to all of the students.
Linda Acevado, one of the teachers, started an online petition to get Post to record the video. She claimed she sent the petition to Post’s agents, manager, business partners, and record label but received no response. Linda was unfazed, a coworker had a friend who had a way to get to Post, and he recorded the video.
Linda broke down in tears in the video as an emotional Post offers words of comfort to the students. Phil’s widow says it was a moving experience for her children to see their father honored and it was a very powerful day. RIP.
