Photo gallery: Overflow crowd pays respects to local singer Combs

Hundreds of people patiently waited in line outside a Columbus funeral home to pay their respects to the family of local singer Jamaal Combs, who died last Friday at Columbus Regional Hospital of a heart condition.

The line to get into the Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home at 1029 Washington St., leading up to the 1 p.m. funeral service was several blocks long.

Combs, 35, was well-known in the local music community, partly from his winning the 2010 Columbus Idol Live competition and partly from his singing at a variety of events, ranging from the 2015 Bartholomew County Area Branch of the NAACP banquet to the national anthem at gatherings such as a 2012 Gridiron Celebrity Hoops Basketball Game at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
