Late Muhammad Ali’s younger brother Rahaman wept as he was surrounded by mourners at a memorial service for the late boxing legend.
Ali’s younger brother put his hand to his face, overcome with emotion, as members of the King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church in Louisville’s west end paid tribute to the heavyweight champion who died on Friday night at the age of 74.
He also clapped and swayed to hymns as the boxer’s hometown began to mark his passing.
The church features a painting by Ali’s father, Cassius Clay Sr., and isn’t far from the pink house where the boxing champion grew up.
During the two-hour service, assistant pastor Charles Elliott III asked the congregation to stand to honor Muhammad Ali. In his tribute, Elliott said ‘there is no great man that has done more for this city than Muhammad Ali’.
