King who will be speaking and the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Reverend Raphael G. Warnock, and a Democratic candidate for US Senate, will be conducting the eulogy, with musical selections being performed gospel music greats, Smokie Norful, Tamela Mann and Kurt Carr.  The homegoing service for Rayshard Brooks

According to a statement by Reverend Warnock 

“Ebenezer is a parish for all people, a sanctuary for those who suffer,” “Rayshard was not a member of our church but he, and his loved ones, are a part of our family. We seek to embrace them, comfort them and walk beside them in the days ahead.”

We will be keeping the family and friends of Rayshard Brooks uplifted in our prayers.
