AFTER Louis Vuitton fashion designer Virgil Abloh’s death was announced, Kanye West (Ye) dedicated his Sunday service to him.
Ye’s choir covered Adele’s song, Easy on Me, in a performance dedicated to Abloh, which was live-streamed at dondalive.com.
The fashion designer was Ye’s longtime creative director.
Abloh passed away at age 41 after battling a rare form of cancer known as cardiac angiosarcoma.
His death was announced via a post on his Instagram account. The caption read:
“We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a fiercely devoted father, husband, son, brother, and friend.”
The post continued, “He is survived by his loving wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh, and numerous dear friends and colleagues.
Abloh’s battle with cancer was kept largely private and out of the public eye.
