ATLANTA (AP) — Funeral arrangements have been set for Venisha Brown, one of the daughters of legendary soul singer James Brown.

Venisha Brown died last week due to complications from pneumonia at an Augusta hospital. She was 53.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the service will be held at 1 p.m. Oct. 5 at Carpentersville Baptist Church in North Augusta, South Carolina.

Brown was the daughter of the late “Godfather of Soul” and the late Yvonne Fair, formerly of the singing group, the Chantels.

James Brown died in 2006.

Family members say of all of his children, Venisha Brown is the one who could most closely mimic the notable dancing skills of her famous father.
