Long live dolphin! Today, thousands of Memphis, celebrities, friends, and family members of the late Young Dolph gathered at the Memphis FedExForum to honor the heritage, family man, businessman, and philanthropist. Dolph’s service, broadcast live on Revolt, was proof of what kind of man he was. The service was sad but also inspiring.
The talented Keke Wyatt took the stage and sang a beautiful rendition of “His eye is on the sparow” that moved everyone in the audience.
Keke wasn’t the only celebrity showing Dolph love. C. Murda also offered condolences behind bars at Angola State Prison, Louisiana. In the video, C spoke highly of Dolph and shared how the late rapper was constantly checking him out to make sure he was doing it. He also shared how Dolph financially supported his children while he was in prison. R&B singer Monica appeared on the following C reading a heartfelt letter from the rapper stating that Dolph made him a better man.
Dolph’s wife, Mia Jaye, and their children took to the stage to discuss Dolph’s legacy. Mia, who affectionately referred to him as her soulmate, said, “He was the brilliant man, the intelligent man, the charming man, he was everything.” As she went on, she explained how generous and great Dolph was and asked God to heal her and the hearts of her children. Dolph’s son, Adolph Thornton III, said: “My father raised me to be a good man when I grew up. Now that he’s gone, I’ll make it up to the whole world and I’ll be the greatest person you have ever met.
When the service ended, Senator Katrina Robinson Mia presented a resolution from Tennessee to commemorate Young Dolph’s philanthropy, declaring November 17 the official Adolph ‘Young Dolph’ Thornton, Jr. Day of Service in Tennessee & Georgia.
When participants left Dolph’s service, Fox 13 reported a shootout to Memphis, but later announced to the public that police had advised them that it was not. Instead, a tire broke.
Our thoughts continue with the Young Dolph family.
