Meet the Godfather of Soul!

James Brown was given a public viewing at the Apollo Theater in NYC today. Thousands lined up at the theater where James got his start over 40 years ago. His body was brought to the theater by a horse drawn carriage. After today’s viewing his body will be taken to Augusta where he will be buried after another public viewing on Saturday.

The guest list for his funeral has included names like Tom Cruise, Usher, Jamie Foxx, Aretha Franklin and many more.

Open caskets have always creeped me out. What if they come alive and grab you? Ugh.


Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
