Rick James with his daughter, Ty James

Music star Rick James and his daughter, Ty James, pause on the red carpet before the fourth annual BET Awards. This was at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, California on June 29, 2004. BET is the acronym for the popular cable channel Black Entertainment Television. Sadly, this was one of Rick James's last public appearances: he died 38 days later, on August 6, 2004.
