Devastated to learn of Rickey's tragic passing. He was such a light on Season 2 of Idol and absolutely the most positive and joyful presence, as well as being so very talented and much beloved by his fellow contestants, as well as the producers and Idol staff. I'll bet he is singing up a storm with Prince and Michael Johns! Sincere prayers and condolences to his family,. I pray that all who remember him will take this opportunity to show love to the family he leaves behind.
My thoughts and prayers are with Rickey's family and loved ones. So many people enjoyed his music on American Idol. I hope many people give whatever they can to help this beautiful family of his in the aftermath of such a tragic loss. God be with them at this difficult time.
My prayers are with you all. I remember what a positive kindred spirit he was when we were young. When boys his age were joining gangs he was cracking jokes and singing boyz II men songs. He will be missed.
Prayers to all his family and dear friends. I am currently trying to raise money for my sister Dana Hairston of Danville VA who passed away after a head injury two days ago. My heart poors out to his family. The pain is heart aching but have faith in God, he will guide you through. God bless and stay strong.
He was so sweet and always singing. Rip my dear friend. Spread your wings and fly. Fly high like an eagle.
