WHAT: PUBLIC VIEWING AND MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR TEDDY PENDERGRASS.

Teddy Pendergrass, one of the leading soul singers of all time and R&B’s reigning sex symbol in the 1970s and ’80s, to be remembered with family by friends, dignitaries, celebrities and fans from around the world.

The legendary, Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter, whose powerful vocals helped define The Sound of Philadelphia, first with Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (“I Miss You,” “Bad Luck,” “Wake Up Everybody,” and the two million seller “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”) and later with an incendiary solo career as an international R&B superstar (“Close the Door,” “Turn Off the Lights,” “I Don’t Love You Anymore” “Love T.K.O.”), was an inspirational figure to millions through the charitable Teddy Pendergrass Alliance (TPA) and his partnership with the National Spinal Cord Injury Association.
