Heavy D's 'Now That We Found Love' Returns to Billboard Charts

A public wake will be held in Mt. Vernon, New York on Thursday to commemorate the life of late rapper Dwight "Heavy D" Myers, who died unexpectedly on Tuesday, Nov. 8 outside of his Beverly Hills home at the age of 44.

Details about the service, which will be held from noon until 6:00 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church, can be found on rememberheavyd.com, a recently created memorial website set up in his honor. It also includes information on how to donate to the Heavy D and Xea Myers Fund, which has been established in support of Heavy D's daughter.

A Heavy D hotline number can also be found at the site along with instructions for flower delivery.

A funeral for the Jamaica-born, Queens-raised musician-turned-actor is scheduled for the following day, Nov. 18, also at the Grace Baptist Church. P. Diddy and Rev. Al Sharpton are expected to speak, according to the Associated Press.

An autopsy, it was announced earlier today, proved to be inconclusive with toxicology results pending. Reports cited that Heavy D was experiencing difficulty breathing and collapsed. It could be several weeks before the cause of death is revealed.
