New Years Eve is meant to celebrate entering a new year but proved to be a time of sorrow for a few families. On New Years Eve (December 31st), Flavor Flav’s mother, Anna Drayton died.
While the cause of death has not yet been provided, Flav announced his mother’s passing on his personal Twitter account:
Flav has attributed his mother’s work in the church choir as inspiration for him to get into the music business. He told People.com in 2008 “She used to play in the church and I used to watch her. I used to come home and try to mimic her.”
