Usher's stepson Kile Glover, who recently passed away in a horrific jet ski accident, will be buried this Friday in Atlanta.
The funeral will be held at the Wieuca Road Baptist Church on Peachtree Road at 11 a.m. on Friday.
Here was a statement from the family:
"We know God's in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it's the best way we can all support him now."
It's incredibly sad to lose a family member, but it's a tragedy to lose a child, especially for a mother.
Our hearts go out to his family.

We are so sorry to hear this.
Tameka Foster did not want to take 11-year-old Kile Glover off of life support following his July 8 jetski accident.
But unfortunately, doctors confirmed his injuries were too devastating to survive. After struggling with the decision, Usher's stepson was taken off of life support and passed away Saturday morning.
Our thoughts are with Usher and Tameka. So much love goes out to you two.
Rest in peace, Kile…

We cannot even begin to imagine what this poor woman must be going through right now.
This is a decision that no mother should ever have to make.
A week after Kyle Glover, Usher's stepson with Tameka Foster, was declared brain dead after a tragic jet ski accident in Georgia, we've now learned that the singer's ex-wife will be forced to take the 11-year-old off of life-support as soon as early August, as his insurance coverage will expire.

This is certainly no surprise, and given the circumstances, completely understandable.
Although Usher had been booked as a presenter at tonight's ESPY Awards on ESPN, the singer has been forced to pull out after a tragic jet ski accident over the weekend left his stepson Kyle Glover brain dead.
We can't even begin to imagine what he and the rest of his family are going through right now, and we can encourage him to take as much time off from work, as well as work-related commitments, as he needs.
You guys are in our thoughts and prayers.

Ugh! How tragic!
Usher's stepson, Kile Glover, has been declared brain dead after his horrific accident last Friday. The 11-year-old son of Tameka Foster was struck in the head by a passing jet ski while floating around on an inner tube in Georgia's Lake Lanier.
He's been in critical condition since he was first admitted to the hospital and we're so, so, SO sad to report that his health hasn't made any improvements. His brain hasn't displayed any activity during his stay.
We hear no
