A prayer vigil has been held for US rapper DMX. Fans and the family chanted his name and prayed outside the New York hospital where he remained on life support.
The 50-year-old, who's a Christian, was admitted to the hospital on Friday, following a heart attack.
The crowd outside White Plains Hospital called "DMX! DMX!" and, when urged to by the main speaker, crossed their arms in the shape of an X.
A woman's sobs reverberated as those in the audience heard a recording of the rapper, whose birth name is Earl Simmons.
Simmons' longtime lawyer, Murray Richman, said on Sunday that the rapper was admitted to the intensive care unit but he was not sure what caused the heart attack.
DMX made his rap debut in 1998, and has released seven albums in a career that has included three Grammy nominations. He also acted in several movies.
But substance abuse has been a struggle for him over the years, including in 2019 when he cancelled shows to go to a rehabilitation facility.
Last April, he held a Bible study on Instagram Live.
DMX has also he felt God called him to become a pastor and credits his faith for helping him overcome life's challenges.
