Members of the group honored White. Philip Bailey said: "Right now we'd like to pay tribute to the visionary who we lost last week, the man with whom none of this would be possible, Mr. Maurice White."
MStars News previously reported that White died at his home in Los Angeles on Feb. 3 at the age of 74. The singer had Parkinson's disease for many years. White's brother and bandmate, Verdine White, said his brother "passed away peacefully last night in his sleep."
His full statement read: "My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep. While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes."
