Pharell honours his cousin who was gunned down on his birthday

It was just a little over a week ago when Virginia Beach was hit with multiple tragedies.

It’s reported that three separate shootings occurred in the same area, resulting in two fatalities. One person who lost their life was Donovan Lynch, the 25-year-old cousin of Pharell Williams who was reportedly shot and killed by police.

While details regarding the incident remain scarce, Pharrell has publicly called for a transparent and thorough investigation. Lynch’s loved ones gathered together at Wave Church where the mega-producer spoke about how he hoped that the “tragedy” would encourage conversations about dangers in the community.

“Although Donovan’s body laid in the street for an inhuman amount of time, his spirit got up,” Pharell reportedly said. Tragedy after Tragedy the body of Virginia Beach keeps getting knocked down. But it is time for the spirit of Virginia Beach to get up.”

Mayor Bobby Dyer was in the audience at the funeral and Pharrell reportedly questioned why Dyer waited a week before contacting Lynch’s family. “Virginia Beach, you need to talk about your issues, talk about your struggles so we can get past them,” Pharrell added. “We need to put each other on notice, not to tear each other down but to lift each other up so we can become effective. So that we can win.”
