Earlier this summer on August 4, a gunman took the lives of nine people and injured 27 others in Dayton, Ohio. The mass shooting forever changed the lives of so many people. But on August 25, the people of Dayton took back their city and reclaimed it with some happy memories, with the help of a few celebrities, including Dave Chapelle.

Kanye West and Dave Chappelle brought two benefit concerts to Dayton in honor of the victims of the August 4 shooting.

Throughout 2019, West has been hosting a weekly “Sunday Service” that brings special guests and a choir together to perform new versions of hit songs. He hosted a surprise Sunday Service this past Sunday.

The event included the choir’s renditions of West’s songs like “Ultralight Beam,” “Jesus Walks” and “Fade.” They also sang a rendition of Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing,” although in this case it turned into a rallying cry “We’re Still Standing. The choir belted also belted out Clipse’s “Shinin,” which seems like a nod to Dayton’s nickname of the “Gem City.” The full live stream is available to replay at sundayservice.com.

“We’ve come to love you and we’ve come to share the love of Jesus Christ with you all today,” West told the crowd.

Dave Chappelle also took the stage at the Sunday Service and said:

“There’s been tornadoes. There’s been shootings. There’s been Klan rallies. But we’re still here. We’re still strong. The best way that we can honor our fallen is by getting up better than we were before. We cannot let those people die in vain. They are heroes, they are martyrs.”

After the Sunday Service, Dave Chappelle hosted Gem City Shine, another benefit concert in the Oregon District of Dayton.

It’s the same area of the city where the shooting took place. The hope was that Chappelle’s event could help the citizens “take back” the Oregon District.

Gem City Shine included appearances from Thundercat, Talib Kweli, Teyana Taylor, and Jon Stewart. The show closed out with performances by Chance the Rapper and Stevie Wonder.

Dave Chappelle is a resident of Yellow Springs, which is part of the Dayton Metro area. Throughout the show, he took the stage to talk about the strength of Dayton.

“Today we’re gonna show the world that nothing can get us down,” Dave Chappelle said.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine also appeared at the event. According to USA Today, the crowd chanted, “Do something!” at him in the hope that legislative action might prevent more tragedies of gun violence from occurring in the future.
