Donna Summer's funeral has been held in Nashville, Tennesse with hundreds of friends and family attending the private event.

The iconic singer behind hits such as 'Love To Love You Baby' has lived in Nashville since 1995 and was buried at the Christ Presbyterian Church.

Donna Summer passed away last week at the age of 63 after a bout of illness, which she had hoped to keep a secret.

Tributes to Summer have been paid by the likes of Giorgio Moroder and Quincy Jones.

Guests at the funeral included producer David Foster, who performed a version of The Prayer with singer Natalie Grant. Summer's brother, Ricky Gaines, also spoke to those who gathered to remember their friend and family member.
