George Floyd was laid to rest yesterday, June 9, 2020.

46-year-old Floyd died after being restrained by Minneapolis Police officers on May 25 and his death sparked off a series of anti-racism protests as well as protests against police brutality. This brought about "Black Lives Matter" protest.

George Floyd‘s funeral service was held at the Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, Texas. It was the final service, after a series of memorial services held this week. Family members and friends, most dressed all in white, stepped up to a microphone to describe Floyd as a loving, larger-than-life personality who deserved justice.

Rev. Al Sharpton gave a speech while Ne-Yo performed, during the funeral service during the funeral service. The 40-year-old singer performed Boyz II Men‘s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” and struggled to get through the entire song as he held back tears.

Joe Biden also spoke to the family and guests at the funeral with a video message.
