After her performance of “Mr. Wrong” at the 2011 American Music Awards, Mary J. Blige took a moment to pay tribute to her late friend Dwight “Heavy D” Myers. Heavy D died on November 8, 2011 and was remembered by hundreds of fans and friends this past Friday at Grace Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon, NY.
“Rest in peace to my dear friend, my loved one, my brother, the loveable and great Heavy D, “Mary said at the end of her performance with Heavy’s picture appearing behind her on stage. “I miss you so much, brother. God bless.”
