I was shocked like many of you were to find out Dwight Myers -better known to the rest of the world as Heavy D- had died at just 44-years-old earlier this month.
Heavy D was probably best known for his 1991 hit ‘Now That We Found Love,’ which was a hell of a popular song when it dropped. I vaguely remember dancing to it as a child way back it when.
Heavy D didn’t just leave his mark on music, his talents extended into the film and television world as well. As stated in his IMDb page, Heavy D had put in more than 20 years worth of acting experience at the time of his death. His last onscreen role occurred in the recently released film ‘Tower Heist.’
If anything, Heavy D’s death is reminder that nothing is promised to us beyond the here and now. We should all seek to leave some sort of positive impact while we still have time. It is only fitting that Heavy D’s last tweet was “Be Inspired!” Heavy D certainly was that, and a lot more, while he was with us.
