On Saturday night Pandora hosted its fifth annual day-long Los Angeles concert, Sounds Like You: Summer at the LA Memorial Coliseum on Saturday night. Performers like up-and-coming One Direction-like set PRETTYMUCH, Noah Cyrus, Machine Gun Kelly and Kat Graham performed throughout the day. But it was G.O.O.D. Music artist Big Sean who headlined the evening.

With an array of hit records, the Detroit rhymer was a proper night cap. He ran through bangers like his verse on “Clique,” both “Moves” and “Bounce Back” from his latest album I Decided. and smash “I Don’t Fuck With You.” But what may have been the most impactful part was when he broke off from his rap showing filled with pyro and bright lights to provide a bit a pastoral guidance. His sermon to the enamored audience was simple. In a nutshell, he said that everything you want can be yours. It’s all about zoning in and dropping the dead weight around you.

That message—preaching manifestation, is a rare one on such a stage. But as the last month of summer approaches for many teens who were in the crowd and weeks away from heading back to school, it’s great one. You can be cool and stylish and yourself, as Sean clearly was on stage, and become whoever you desire. In an era where many spend their time glued to their phones admiring others’ lives via social media, Big Sean won the weekend by telling each person within an earshot to be themselves.
