Family and close friends will gather in Houston on Tuesday for the funeral of George Floyd, two weeks after he died at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
The private funeral will take place at The Fountain of Praise Church at 11 a.m. local time. The service will also be live-streamed, said La’Torria Lemon, spokeswoman for Fort Bend Memorial Planning Center, the funeral home where Floyd’s visitation took place Monday. Thousands attended the visitation.
Tuesday’s service will be limited to 500 people.
Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather is handling all the expenses for Floyd’s funeral, Lemon said in a news release.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and actor Jamie Foxx are among those expected at the funeral, Lemon said.
