The last song of his set last night was "in my time of dying" and contains the lyrics "in my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn. All I want for you to do is take my body home." RIP to a great artist! I hope he did find peace

He died the same way as his lover Whitney Houston and love child Bobbi Kristina, in the bath tub.
