Stars Come Out to Honor Levert

Posted By on Wed, Nov 15, 2006 at 9:18 AM

Stevie Wonder, Johnny Gill, and Angie Stone are all expected to attend Friday's "Celebration of Life" musical tribute to Gerald Levert, who died on Friday. The public is invited to the memorial, which starts at noon at the Cleveland Music Hall (500 Lakeside Avenue). Levert's dad (and O'Jay) Eddie Levert will also be there, performing with Gerald's younger brother, Sean. The Levert family asks that fans not send flowers and instead make a donation to the R&B Foundation, which provides financial support and medical assistance to ailing soul singers. Levert championed the institution throughout his life. Send contributions to Andy Gibson c/o Trevel Productions Inc., P.O. Box 200375, Cleveland, OH 44120. -- Michael Gallucci
