His mother just died last week, but Kanye West valiantly tried to live up to the adage of "the show must go on," returning to his tour Saturday night in Paris. After performing for over an hour, the singer tried to introduce his song, "Hey Mama," with a dedication to his mother, Donda West, but after saying "this song is for my mother," Kanye started crying onstage. Some members of his band came to console him as the audience cheered their support for the distraught artist. Kanye left the stage, then came back 15 minutes later to finish the show with his song "Stronger" to a wildly appreciative audience. Kanye will continue his European tour, but is expected to fly to Oklahoma City for his mother's funeral on Tuesday.
