Gospel singer Zacardi Cortez had the honor of celebrating the life of George Floyd on Tuesday during his funeral at The Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, Texas.
Cortez, who is also a Houston native, song “I Shall Wear A Crown” as Floyd, who was called “The Gentle Giant” coffin was wheeled out of the Houston church.
“Today was heavy and I’m not gon lie, this mask caught a gang of tears. But cuz of today I wanna do as much as I can for my community, he wrote on his social media account.
George Floyd is not just the name on my mask. He’s not just a news topic. He’s not just the person who’s life I had the honor of celebrating today. He was a black man and father like me, but his life was TAKEN senselessly, intentionally and violently.”
