*In my best Raphael Saadiq impression* “Fellas(ladies) help me out!” This is a question that you may not want to be answered. I know for me if you were a potential Valentine and this song popped up on my playlist because Ray Ray told me he saw you at Sizzler with you know who… it’s back to Walgreens I go and I will be calling you to retrieve that Arch Card I just gave you for Christmas.

“I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words. Divinity brought our souls together on ‘The Wiz’ and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the ’80s.

He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”
