PRESIDENT OBAMA WRITES LETTER TO HEAVY D’S DAUGHTER; JAY Z, DIDDY, WILL & JADA ATTEND THE SERVICE
This morning rapper Heavy D was remembered and honored by many celebrities including Jay Z, Diddy, Usher, Samuel L. Jackson, Will & Jada, Queen Latifiah and many more. Rev. Al Sharpton read a letter of encouragement from President Obama, that was addressed to Heavy D’s 11 year old daughter, Xea Myers.
“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,” read the Obama note.
I love our president. It’s great that he extended his condolences to Heavy D’s family. The two weren’t that far in age, and President Obama was probably a fan. I am glad so many of Heavy’s friends were able to pay their respects.Rest In Peace again Heavy D!
