Dave Chappelle beautifully tributes Charlie Murphy

During a John Mayer concert, comedian Dave Chappelle spoke out about his memories of Charlie Murphy, who on Wednesday unexpectedly passed away after a long battle with cancer.

Chapelle got on stage at the show and explained that Mayer’s song “You’re Going to Live Forever in Me” is what prompted him to speak about the late comedian at that particular venue.

“Today, I got some terrible news,” he said. “My good friend Charlie Murphy passed away this morning and everybody in comedy is heartbroken, so John, you are a sight for sore eyes.”

“John, if you would, there was a night, maybe four months ago, where we were at Hotel Café in LA,” he added. “You were doing a show for 120 people. You went to the piano and you sang this song, and the song you sang that night reminded me of my friend, Charlie Murphy.”

Mayer then played the song in Murphy’s honor.
