Ten-time Grammy award winner CeCe Winans will perform at the funeral for Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife, Pastor Ruth Munroe in his native Bahamas on Thursday, Dec. 4, The Bahamas Weekly reports.
Munroe and his wife, Ruth, and Bahamas Faith Ministries deputy, Richard Pinder, along with another pastor and his family were victims of a fatal plane crash in early November.
The public funeral will be held at the Bahamas Faith Ministries Diplomat Center. A private service for the family and senior government officials will be held Wednesday, the day before, and a National Memorial will follow that evening.
The National Memorial is expected to attract a wide cross-section of Bahamians including visitors to the country and will feature a number of tributes and special music performances. Jewish people from around the world are mourning the loss of Munroe, and Christian leaders are still shocked and saddened by his death.
A National Memorial will be held in honor of Dr. Munroe and his wife on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium Oaks Field Sporting Complex in Nassau, Bahamas. The event will start at 6 p.m. with doors open for seating at 5 p.m. The event is open to the public, and there is no admission fee or invitations needed to attend. There will, however, be reserved seating for the family, senior government officials, Bahamas Faith Ministries members, as well as local and international dignitaries.
