Common serenaded Halle Berry at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.

On Saturday (June 3) at the 16th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, Common accepted the Spirit of Chrysalis Award -- but won the ultimate award of the evening, when he got the opportunity to serenade Halle Berry on stage. 

At the fundraising benefit for low-income individuals and the homeless, he ended the night with a performance. During the rapper's set, Halle Berry was lucky enough to be invited on stage for a front-row seat to her own freestyle show. The rapper spit several verses to the Oscar-winning actress, who looked humbled as he rapped, “Maybe me and Halle, yo, we can get married.”

Common shared a video of the event on Instagram captioned, “What you do last night?” Even though you probably didn’t have as cool of a night as Common, you can relive his experience by watching the clip below.
