Mother of Andre 3000 passes
Andre 3000's mother passes on his birthday.
The mother of one of music's most eclectic artists has passed. Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, mother to Andre 3000 died on Monday in her Atlanta home. Andre was turning 38 years-old that same day. Benjamin-Hodo founded the Starlight Camp for underprivileged children which she ran out of a church in Conley, Georgia. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers, support be made to the camp.
Andre shot to fame with his partner, Antwan "Big Boi" Patton, when they formed Outkast and released 1994's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
The cause of death has not yet been released.
We here at Loop 21 send Andre and his family much love and our deepest condolences.
