Yolanda Adams and Faith Evans reportedly also performed musical tributes.

Unfortunately for the eight-time Grammy winning R&B artist and media/music industry entrepreneur, the sale price is not only a notable $900,000 less than the in-hindsight pie-in-the-sky original asking price of $4.2 million but it’s also a bit less than the not quite $3.37 million he paid for the property over the summer of 2015.
