Local News: Prayer vigil for TCB talker Polo


By Sarah Godfrey

Go-go band TCB announced this morning, via its blog, that a prayer vigil for the group's lead talker, Reggie "Polo" Burwell will take place this evening at Northeast Washington's Douglas Memorial United Methodist Church.

Burwell has been hospitalized since early April 11, after falling ill during a show on Saturday, April 10.

While the vigil is open to the public, the band implored fans planning on attending to "please be respectful and mindful of his family and close friends."

The statement also said that the popular go-go talker's condition is "critical but stable," and addressed continuing speculation about his health. "Some rumors have been floating around that his condition has improved so drastically that he tried to sit up. As much as we would like for it to be the truth, it is far from it. He has been in a coma since Sunday."

"Rumors may make it to the streets faster than we can address them but we will only post facts when they are confirmed by the family."

Douglas Memorial is at 800 11th Street N.E. The vigil begins at 6 p.m.
