Details about B.B. King's memorial and funeral services have been revealed.

B.B. King will always be remembered.

His youngest daughter, Claudette announced details regarding her father’s memorial service on Facebook Saturday.

She announced that the celebration of the blues legend’s life will be in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 23.

HELLO ALL. Thank you everyone for your well wishes. My dad’s service is next Saturday, May 23rd in Las Vegas. Lying in state Friday, May 22, 2015. More later.-Claudette

The public will also be able to see the music icon and pay their respects at a viewing in Sin City on Friday.

This announcement comes only a few days after B.B. King died peacefully in his sleep.

The memorial services will give his other daughters, Patty King and Karen Williams, the chance to say goodbye, since they sadly didn’t have that opportunity before he passed.

Information about the singer’s funeral and burial service haven’t been released yet, but the executive director of the B.B. King Museum, Dion Brown, says they will be held in Indianola, Mississippi the week after his memorial.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the legendary musician.
