Yesterday the world said goodbye to one of music’s greats, Heavy D. His funeral was held at Grace Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon, NY, and many from the music/ entertainment industry went and paid their respects to the late artist. Diddy, Jay-Z, Queen Latifah, John Legend, Will and Jada Pinkett- Smith, Denzel Washington, and many more were in attendance for the somber event. Rev. Al Sharpton who was also in attendance, delivered a note from the Obamas sending his condolences to the family.
“We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers,” the note read.
