Jared Leto took the stage during Sunday's Music Video Awards on MTV to pay tribute to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington

The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman's heartfelt tribute acknowledged Bennington's wife and six chidren. Plus, he acknowledged Chester's incredible talent.

"I remember his voice, at once ferocious and delicate. That voice will live forever," Leto said. 

The tribute also acknowledged those who are suffering from pain. 

"If there is anyone out there who is watching this tonight who feels like there is no hope, hear me now," Leto said. "You are not alone. There is always a way forward. Reach out, share your thoughts, do not give up." 

Linkin Park's Chester Bennington was found dead last month after committing suicide.
