Usher and his loved ones are preparing to say their final goodbyes to 11-year-old Kile Glover.

The R&B singer's former stepson (with ex-wife Tameka Foster) was taken off life support last weekend after a horrific July 6 jet ski accident that left Glover brain-dead.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the funeral will take place at the Wieuca Road Baptist Church in Atlanta at 11 a.m. Friday morning.

"We know God's in control and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time," the family said in a statement just after Glover's accident. (A 15-year-old girl was also injured in the accident, though she's expected to make a full recovery.)

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the investigation into the driver of the jet-ski, family friend Jeffrey Hubbard, was ongoing, though charges have yet to be pressed against him.
