Regardless of what folks think in terms of his private life, the man was a brilliant entertainer. Can we all just stay focused on the brilliant entertainer and do right by him?
I think Mr. Brown merits the same legacy that Elvis Presley does, and deserves to have his wishes met. How bout getting on the good foot and volunteer to work at his birthday bash/festival/Thanksgiving/Christmas gigs? Mr. Brown gave freely to the community. Now it's time for the community to step up to the challenge and give him the respect and honor due him.
He earned his money and paid his dues. Now it's up to the rest of us to put up or shut up! Take the greed and power out of the equation and replace it with working together and getting the job done right.
