Los Angeles: Rapper Wiz Khalifa paid a moving tribute to actor Paul Walker at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards by peforming to his hit single “See You Again”, from the star’s last film “Furious 7”. Walker died in a car accident in November 2013. He was 40. Khalifa’s rendition the song tugged at everyone’s heart strings at the Las Vegas music awards show, reported Us magazine.

Charlie Puth, who sings on Khalifa’s track, brought tears to the eyes of the audience members as he opened the performance, singing his stunning ballad while sitting at the piano. A Walker tribute video for the hit song was released in April, showing footage of the late dad-of-one, both from his most recent blockbuster movie and from previous footage from the other films from the now infamous franchise.
