Jay-Z dedicated his sold-out Sunday night concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York to rapper Kanye West’s mother, who died over the weekend. Near the end of his nearly two-hour set, the rapper asked for a moment of silence to pay respect to Donda West.

“Let’s get serious for a minute,” Jay-Z told the energetic crowd during his encore performance. “This show is dedicated to Kanye West who had a death in the family.” The crowd quickly became silent. “We got you, Kanye. Stay strong,” he added before launching into his final song of the night, “Roc Boys.”
