*According to sources, EUR has learned that the funeral for singer/songwriter/producer Nick Ashford will be held this Saturday, August 27, at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem.

Curiously the start time for the going home services is scheduled for 4 PM (New York time).

That raises the question of his burial. If he is to be buried, would it be Saturday night or Sunday? Or another day? As of this posting, we simply haven’t been able to find out. However, some are speculating that he may be cremated.

As far as the repast, our sources say it will be held at Ashford’s – and his now widow – Valerie Simpson’s Sugar Bar on West 72nd. Street in Manhattan.

Nick Ashford lost his battle with throat cancer at the age of 70 this past Monday.
