Snoop Dogg closed out his performance last night (Oct. 24) with a special tribute to his mother Beverly Broadus Green, who sadly passed away on Sunday.

“We gon’ play this record for my mama,” Snoop told the crowd at Boston’s Big Night Live venue. The Long Beach native then proceeded to play Ben E. King’s classic song, “Stand By Me” and invited the audience to sing along.

“If you know the words let’s go, feel free to sing along with me,” he said.

As reported by REVOLT, Snoop revealed his mother passed away on Sunday. The rapper posted a series of tribute on Instagram, including calling his mother an “angel” and thanking her for having him.

Snoop’s father Vernella Varnado also shared the tragic news on Instagram. “Snoop’s mom has passed today can all my fans pray for our family we need it more than ever,” he wrote in a post.

Since the news broke; fans, collaborators and fellow celebrities have continued to send their condolences and love to the rap veteran.

“So sorry for your loss. Keep your head up,” T.I. wrote on Instagram.

Martha Stewart, Snoop’s close friend and collaborator, added, “Poor mother! I am so sorry that you have suffered such a grievous loss Snoop. May she rest in peace.”

Snoop asked fans to send their prayers to his mom back in May, though he did not reveal what was wrong. Green was reportedly hospitalized earlier this year for unknown reasons.

The 70-year-old was an ordained evangelist and authored two books, including Real Love and her autobiography, Real Love II: The Story of an Extraordinary Woman. She discussed her health issues in a video taken during her birthday party earlier this year.

“I am celebrating my 70th birthday and it’s been a joy coming to this,” she said. “Even though there were times when I thought I wouldn’t make it. I’ve been a sick woman in the hospital for six weeks at a time and didn’t know… but the God that I serve, he told me it wasn’t time and he let me live on just a little bit longer. And I’m so happy. I’m so blessed.”
