Roommates, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Little Richard, who passed away on Saturday, at the age of 87. Richard’s son, Danny Penniman, confirmed his death with Rolling Stone, but said the cause is currently unknown.

For those of you who are too young to remember, Little Richard was the founding father of rock and roll, who set the standard for out of the box showmanship in the black community. His stage persona was unique, and larger than life, as he sported his pompadours, makeup and beaded shirts.

While it is unclear how he passed, it is safe to say that he will be missed, and his legacy will continue to live on!

Stay with us as the story continues to develop, Roomies, and keep those impacted in your prayers.
