“My good friend Charlie Murphy passed away this morning, and everybody in comedy is heartbroken,” Chappelle said, before asking Mayer to play a song for Murphy. He urged the crowd to put their phones away so they could “make a memory that only we have.”

“Rest in peace, Charlie Murphy. We love you. We love your comedy. We love your stories, and we love your spirit,” Chappelle said, as Mayer began playing “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.”
