Rap act Bone Thugs-N-Harmony halted a performance in Wisconsin last week (ends28Jul13) to pay tribute to the man who saved three women in Ohio who had been held captive for 10 years.

The hip-hop group was performing at the The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee on Friday (26Jul13) when they stunned the crowd by bringing Charles Ramsey onstage.

Ramsey helped free Amanda Berry after hearing her screaming from his neighbour's home in Cleveland in May (13), and the group took time to pay tribute to him.

Standing alongside Ramsey, the rappers shouted, "He's a motherf**king hero!"

His appearance came on the same weekend rapper Nelly brought Berry out on stage in front of his fans at a gig in Ohio.
