The Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed [The Mosque Cares] extends heartfelt condolences to family, friends and fans of blues legend, B.B. King. Many of us are united in appreciation for B.B. King's internationally acclaimed talents. He had a passion for art; remained true to his vision and generously served humanity for decades.
Quoting President Barack Obama, “The blues has lost its king, and America has lost a legend. B.B. King was born a sharecropper’s son in Mississippi, came of age in Memphis, Tennessee and became the ambassador who brought his all-American music to his country and the world.”
