Mike Posner is back in headlines following his 2019 walking venture across the United States, which briefly left Posner immobilized and hospitalized due to an unexpected rattlesnake encounter. Now, the famed singer/songwriter has set out to ascend the world’s greatest peak, Mount Everest, in a quest to raise funds for his hometown of Detroit’s own Detroit Justice Center.
Posner is not taking the challenge lightly, and has already completed eight months of training in Colorado in preparation for his newest expedition. He is now preparing to leave for Nepal to begin the multiple-months long ascent. Speaking in an interview with CBS, he spoke about overcoming the fear and danger of the journey, stating,
“One thing I’ve learned is that a lot of life, a lot of beauty, is on the other side of that feeling of anxiety, or fear, or whatever you want to call it.”
