Posted by SouthernGurl

There's more information regarding Teddy Pendergrass' homegoing services. The public viewing will be held today from noon to 8 p.m. at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, 2800 W. Cheltenham Ave in Philadelphia. For folks who were wondering if Teddy's funeral would be opened to the public, it will. After a private viewing for family and special guests, the public is invited to attend the services tomorrow at the church at 10 a.m. The service will include special performances by Tyrese, Will Downing, Stephanie Mills and Melba Moore.

Burial services afterward are for family and friends only.

Also, in lieu of flowers, donations to benefit charities can be made through the Teddy Pendergrass Memorial Fund. Make checks out to Theodore P. and Joan Pendergrass, P.O. Box 382, Gladwyne, Pa. 19035.

When Pendergrass died Jan. 13 after a fight with colon cancer, "the world lost one of the greatest and most sensual of soul singers, a gruff-voiced bedroom balladeer to whom every R&B love man from R. Kelly to Usher owes a seducer's debt," according to Inquirer music critic Dan DeLuca.

Tyrese paid a special tribute to Teddy a few nights ago on George Lopez' Lopez Tonight Show by performing one of Teddy's signature ballads, Come Go With Me.

Tyrese is whats hot right now! He has a lot of things going on. My favorite would be his New book, How to get out of your own way. This book is a must read! This is a very intelligent man, I would ask him out my damn self! This is a fine, intelligent black man that puts god first. I am so proud of him for his accomplishments. He has me in his corner!
