Saying Goodbye to James Brown
It was standing room only at the James Brown Arena, in Augusta Georgia, as entertainers, activists, and everyday people gathered to celebrate the home coming of the legend James Brown. Reverands Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson, Michael Jackson, (MC) Hammer, and Chuck D, were among those who attended.
The event started with a video presentation Brown's performances, followed by several musical tributes, and a eulogy from Rev. Sharpton.
Brown was a legend, and there's a reason why he will always be the "Godfather of Soul." His music spanned generations, and he left numerous hits which inspired, uplifted, and gave us a reason to be "black and proud."
