Earlier this week, the 43-year-old Grammy-nominated R&B singer and actor announced the death of his mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson ─ Tyrese mother was admitted to the hospital in early February.

On (Feb. 14.), Gibson shared the news in an Instagram post that featured emotional, heartfelt video. “On behalf of my family and everyone who ever spent anytime praying for my mother This is the saddest moment of my life……….
