For those who are not taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously or don’t think that it’s real or think it’s not as bad as the media is saying it is. We lost Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister last week from COVID-19, R&B singer Ashanti had to cancel the Verzuz battle between she and Keyshia Cole because Ashanti tested positive for COVID-19, now today we have lost another black actress in the entertainment world due to complications from COVID-9, ‘Queen Sugar’s own Carol Sutton.
Prayers are in order as news is breaking that New Orleans native actress Carol Sutton has passed away at the age of 76 years young.
