The Celebration of Life is set to take place at noon Friday, November 17 12 p.m., at the Cleveland Music Hall in the singer’s hometown of Ohio.
As previously reported, Levert passed away last Friday at the age of 40.

A statement on Levert’s Web site reads, “We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Gerald Levert. The family asks that you keep Gerald in your prayers, hearts and minds. He will truly be missed.”
The family also requests that donations be made to the R&B Foundation.
