A historic church plans to hold Heavy D's funeral.
Rapper Dwight Myers, known to everyone as “Heavy D,” will reach his final resting place this Friday. His funeral will take place at the renowned Grace Baptist Church of Mount Vernon reports AP.
The church ranks among the most historic churches in New York and was founded in 1888 by five African-American women. It’s also the oldest Black church in Mount Vernon, New York.
According to their website, “[the Church] has been the fountainhead from which almost all Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal and Episcopalian churches have flowed.”
There will be a public viewing of Heavy D on Thursday, November 17th, followed by the invite-only funeral proceedings the next day. It’s believed that Sean Combs, Mary J. Blige, and other celebrities will be in attendance.
RIP, Heavy D.
