Eminem performed before hundreds of fans at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Thursday night, August 9th. Right before he performed his Grammy Award winning song "Not Afraid:," Em stopped the music and took a moment to thank his many fans for helping him become sober. He feels as though his fans served as a great source of motivation to get his life back on track and continue to flourish through his music career.
"I wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place without y'all," Em stated. "This song is dedicated to anybody tonight who's been through personal struggles."
