GLAD I FINALLY FOUND A PHOTO OF US, MAY I FIRST SAY REST IN PEACE @djreadyred A VERY GOOD PERSON WE LOST, MY CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS & MEMBERS OF THE GROUP @thegetoboys A LOT OF CONFUSION ON BEHALF OF THE MEDIA PLACING THE WRONG PICTURE, JUST RECENTLY THEY POST A PICTURE OF PATTI LABELLE SAYING IT WAS ARETHA FRANKLIN. IT'S A SHAME WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S ON THE INTERNET THEY STILL DON'T HANDLE IT CORRECTLY, MAKES MANY FEEL THAT THE HERITAGE OF BLACK MUSIC IS NOT PRESENTED PROPERLY. MAJOR RESPECT TO ALL SHOWING LOVE & SUPPORT ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT THIS, I FULLY APPRECIATE EVERYONE
