Following a public ceremony held last week for Malcolm Shabazz in Oakland, the grandson of Malcolm X was buried on Tuesday in Hartsdale, New York.
Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was finally laid to rest earlier in the week on May 21 during a private ceremony at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. According to NewsOne.com, a funeral program obtained by the site revealed a special performance from R&B singer Jaheim who sung his Ghetto Love record “I Miss You (For Moms).”
The R&B star, who was reportedly a close friend of Shabazz’, recently announced the fall release of his upcoming album titled Appreciation Day.
Although Jaheim was not present at last week’s traditional Islamic funeral service, which was held in Oakand for Shabazz, the service was attended by over 200 people.
On May 9, Shabazz was killed following a fight with what may have been two waiters at the Palace bar in Mexico City over a bar tab. Shabazz, who was 28-years-old at the time of his death, was buried next to his grandparents Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz.
