NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Rock 'n' roll pioneer Little Richard will be buried in a private funeral at Oakwood University, a historically black university in Huntsville, Alabama.

Gerald Kibble, director of Oakwood Memorial Gardens, said the private funeral will be Wednesday and will not be open to the public.

Little Richard's close friend Pastor Bill Minson said the singer was an alumnus of the university.

Little Richard died Saturday at the age of 87 in Tennessee due to bone cancer.
