Venisha, whose mother was singer Yvonne Fair, was remembered by her half-sister Yamma Brown in an Instagram post with a shot of the pair posed at a hockey rink.

‘My beautiful big sis Venisha has received her angels wings…my heart is broken but I am comforted by the peace you now have!!!’ Yamma wrote. ‘I love you sis.’

The foundation said Brown’s family thanked everyone for their ‘prayers and telephone calls,’ but asked for privacy.

Funeral arrangements are pending, but in lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils, a musical, instrumental, initiative year-round educational hub designed for the youth to discover their musical ability.
