Jay Z Pays Homage To Chester Bennington

Philadelphia (CW Philly) –It’s been a month since the world lost a musical legend in Chester Bennington to suicide.

On Sunday night, Jay-Z honored the late musician with a special performance during his concert at the Virgin V Festival in the U.K.

Jay Z previously collaborated with Linkin Park on the EP “Collision Course.” During his set, he performed their “Numb/Encore” mashup as a tribute to the late singer.
Released in 2004, “Collision Course” debuted at No. 1 and the “Numb/Encore” single won a Grammy for Best Rap/Song Collaboration.

“Can you guys light it up tonight for Chester?” Jay-Z yelled to the crowd at Hylands Park. “Linkin Park, one time — tonight. Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight!”

Following his death, fellow musicians and friends expressed condolences all across social media.

“Our hearts are broken,” his Linkin Park bandmates wrote. “The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.”
