Dolly Parton Pays Tribute Leslie Jordan

Following Monday’s (10) tragic car crash death of actor/comedian/singer, Leslie Jordan in Hollywood. Dolly Parton has paid tribute to her good friend.

Taking to Instagram, the superstar country musician/philanthropist issued a statement about her fellow Tennessee native: 

“Well I am as hurt and shocked as if I have lost a family member. Leslie and I had a special bond, I think the world felt they had a special bond with him.” “I know people always say ‘Oh, they will be missed,’ but in this case that could not be more true. He will be missed by everyone who knew him personally and by everyone who was entertained by him. Rest in peace lil’ brother.”

One of many celebrities to share their condolences via social media, R&B musician Brandy posted an emotional tribute to the Will & Grace star on Instagram, alongside a video of her singing with Jordan:

“I will never understand why god took him home so early. I can’t make sense of this loss right now. I wish I had more profound words to soothe the souls who have lost the laughter and light today.” “Most people know how he made us (his fellow hunker-downers) laugh smile and reconsider our collective tattered faith in god. But few people know the thankless work he did to hold the hands of the rejected and to walk traumatized and forgotten queer people from the trenches to the throne. @thelesliejordan you will never be forgotten you absolute gift to humanity. Put in a good word for us with the ol’ man upstairs.”

Featured appearances by Dolly, Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker, and Eddie Vedder, Leslie released a gospel music album titled Company’s Comin’ in 2021.
