Snoop Dogg paid tribute to his late mother Beverly Tate with a “Stand By Me” singalong.
Dogg performed a DJ set in Boston last Sunday, October 24, just hours after his mother passed away. To honor his mother, an author and evangelist, Snoop played Ben E. King‘s 1961 classic “Stand By Me” and asked the audience to sing along to the track.
“I wasn’t even gonna come out here and perform tonight ’cause my mother passed away earlier tonight, but in the spirit of the people of Boston, I wanted to come out here and represent for y’all because this is what my mama would have wanted me to do,” Snoop told the audience.
“I needed this. I f**king love y’all for getting my spirit right tonight. Peace, love and soul,” Snoop told the audience after completing the singalong.
“He was very emotional after the show,” said Randy Greenstein, a partner at Big Night Live, according to Page Six. “He thanked our team, said he needed this show. He needed the love from the audience. It meant a lot to him.”
