Chuck Brown funeral arrangements start to come together

A week after his death at age 75, arrangements for a public farewell for D.C. musical icon Chuck Brown are starting to come together.

According to daughter Cherita Whiting, plans are in place for an all-day public viewing at the Howard Theatre next Tuesday, May 29. A funeral service will follow on Thursday, May 31. The venue has not been determined, but Whiting said it is likely to be held at either the Washington Convention Center or Verizon Center.

Further details are expected to be released soon, she said.
