Moving Memorial Program Documents Gerald Levert’s Legacy

by Ife Oshun ·

Gerald LevertFor the millions of fans who will not be at the public tribute to Gerald Levert tomorrow in Cleveland, we’re sharing the program for the memorial service.

It opens with beautiful photos of Levert as a baby and later as the successful, big-hearted powerhouse we will always remember him as.

The beautiful full-color program also includes photos of Levert with family and at work in the studio and on stage, a list of his career accomplishments, a touching poem penned by his family, and tear-jerking words from his children, including his son Lemicah Edward Levert who said:

“I am no longer afraid of death because I now have someone waiting for me on the other side… my pops, my pal and my best friend.”
