“These are the first of many steps Travis plans on taking as a part of his personal vow to assist those affected throughout their grieving and recovery process.” 

The star is also working closely with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Mental Health America National, and MHA’s Greater Houston chapter to direct people who are in need of services. 

Despite all of this, the artist is still being condemned for not acting with urgency whilst the chaos was taking place in the crowd.

This has forced multiple people, artists, and event companies to have conversations regarding proper planning and preparations of events of this nature.
