George Floyd will be laid to rest in Houston, Texas today. The funeral and celebration of his life will be held at The Fountain of Praise Church at 11 AM CT. The service is limited to 500 people but will be live-streamed by major news networks such as ABC, CBS and MSNBC.

Mia K. Wright, co-paster of the church, told Don Lemon on Monday: "We celebrate a life that had its ups and downs as many lives do but also a life that was connected to God and one that all people around the world have now connected to because of the tragedy and the trauma by which he passed."
