Charles Ramsey was honored on stage during a recent concert for rescuing three women from convicted kidnapper Ariel Castro's home back in May.

When Cleveland, Ohio, native Amanda Berry kicked open part of the door to Castro's home on May 6, she caught Ramsey's attention, who was a neighbor, and he helped her call 911. Police arrived and also rescued the other two women held in captivity - Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight. Castro was arrested that same day.

Ramsey helped the women escape a decade-long captivity and Castro will face sentencing on Thursday, where he is expected to get life in in prison without parole plus 1,000 years, as per a plea deal.

Ariel Castro Pleads Guilty to 937 Criminal Counts, Including Rape & Aggravated Murder

The rappers of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony pulled Ramsey on stage for a special tribute during their concert in Milwaukee over the weekend. They told the crowd "He's a motherf***ing hero!!!" The crowd cheered for Ramsey but he did not seem amused by the attention. He quickly waved to the audience and then walked off stage, not smiling during the entire scene.

Watch the video below to see Ramsey on stage.

Doing a similar stage appearance was one of the kidnapping victims Ramsey saved: Amanda Berry. She surprised a crowd at a Cleveland concert on July 27 when she walked on stage during Nelly's set at the RoverFest 2013 and marked her first public appearance since being rescued from a decade-long captivity. She walked on stage with her family and waved at the cheering crowd, while smiling at the applause she received.

The victims may chose to appear in cout on Thursday when Castro's sentencing is read out. They will have the opportunity to address the court themselves or through appointed representatives. They could also choose to make written or video-recorded statements, or not participate in the hearing at all. 

The women are getting their live back in order after being in captivity for nearly a decade and DeJesus said on Sunday she is excited now that her home's privacy fence is completed. President of Budget 1 Fence donated the 6ft privacy fence to the DeJesus family, according to NewsChannel5. The fence is worth about $4,000 after instillation and trips to City Hall to get the wanted 6-foot tall height approved.

"I really wanted it. It meant a lot to me," DeJesus said.
