Donna Summer has finally been laid to rest. On Wednesday, May 23 afternoon, less than a week after the Queen of Disco died of lung cancer, several hundred of her closest friends and family gathered together to celebrate her life and bid their final goodbye at a private memorial service held at Christ Presbyterian in Nashville, Tennessee.

While the funeral was kept as private as possible, Summer's record label Universal Music Enterprises informed CNN that music producer David Foster performed "The Prayer" with Natalie Grant. Sisters of the "I Feel Love" singer, Linda Gaines Lotman, Mary Ellen Bernard, Dara Bernard and Jenette Yancey, also sang "We've Come This Far by Faith".

Among the other mourners in attendance were singer Tony Orlando and Italian record producer Giorgio Moroder, who produced several of Summer's hit, including "Love to Love You Baby". Offering more details was TMZ, which reported that the late singer's casket was covered in white roses for the funeral.

Summer died on Thursday, May 17 morning after a 10-month battle against lung cancer that is not related to smoking. According to TMZ, the 63-year-old believed she contracted the disease after inhaling harmful toxic particles following 9/11. She is survived by husband Bruce Sudano, their two children and a daughter from her previous marriage.
