An emotional Big Daddy Weave performed over the weekend at the “Rock the Universe” Christian music festival in Orlando, Florida. The concert was the first the band had played since the death of Jay Weaver, founding member of the Dove Award winning Christian band and brother to the group’s lead vocalist, Mike Weaver.
Last month, Jay Weaver passed away at the age of 42 due to complications related to COVID-19. He had been admitted to the hospital about a week earlier, during which time family and fans alike prayed for his recovery.
On January 2, Mike Weaver announced via Instagram that Jay had passed, saying, “You have walked with him through a huge fight. I’m so sorry to bring this news, but I’m also excited to celebrate where he is right now—my brother Jay went to be with Jesus just a couple hours ago due to complications with COVID-19 on top of everything else that he already had going on.”
