Lansing, Michigan (WLNS) – The People’s Kitchen in Lansing opens its doors Tuesday for those who know 40-year-old music producer Curshawn Terrell.
Terrell was filmed on New Year’s Eve at a recording studio in the same building as People’s Kitchen.
Terrell was better known around Lansing as “Kaz”. The fundraiser was not only for his family but also gave his friends and family a space to remember his impact on the community.
People’s Kitchen staff created a Gofundme earlier this month. Raised over $3000.
Around 3:00 pm on New Year’s Eve, the Lansing Township Police Department responded to a recording studio on the 2000 block of E. Michigan Avenue, where they said they found Kaz and Shaquille Brown shot. Kaz later dies in hospital.
Restaurant staff collected donations through a buffet of comfort food and provided guests with sky lanterns to release outside.
Police said 28-year-old Anthony Anderson Jr., from the Saginaw area, was arrested and charged.
The restaurant’s general manager said a portrait of Kaz, which was ordered on Tuesday, is on display and will be given to the family.
Gofundme is here.
