Macklemore may have battled with drug an alcohol addiction since the age of 15, but hes now drawn from his own experiences to help others – including the likes of Demi Lovato.

At his gig in Mansfield, Mass, the 35-year-old reached out to his sister Demi and dedicated his song Otherside to the singer.

He then went on to talk about his own battle, and revealed to the crowd that he wouldnt be where he was today without getting sober.

The rapper said: I do that song because if it wasnt for my sobriety and my recovery, I wouldnt be on this stage here tonight.

And I just want to send prayers and my thoughts and love out to Demi Lovato. I heard about that, and when we have this disease of addiction, that ties us addicts together and thats my sister in recovery.

He added: I know what its like to slip. I know what its like to relapse. Ive done it many, many times. That song is dedicated to her and anyone else going through it right now.
