Mick Jagger’s spokesperson said poems were shared by actress Ellen Barkin and Mick Jagger’s daughter Karis, while his daughter Jade and grandchildren Mazie and Zak read psalms.
The gospel song Will The Circle Be Unbroken was performed by singer Bernard Fowler with Dave Stewart on guitar, and L’Wren Scott’s niece Hannah Bambrough gave a reading of Shakespeare’s sonnet Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day?

The funeral of L’Wren Scott, following her tragic suicide on March 17, will be held in Los Angeles, opposing the wishes of some of the fashion designer’s family.
With many of L’Wren Scott’s family still based in Utah, it has been unclear until now where her funeral would be held, especially with longtime partner Mick Jagger residing in LA and much of her business and life based in New York. However, it has now been reported that the funeral will be held in LA, according to a report from Page Six. Unfortunately, this decision is mainly in part due to a bitter, unresolved feud that persists in the Scott family.
According to new reports, L’Wren Scott’s funeral will be held in LA at the wishes of her brother and Sir Mick Jagger.

L’Wren Scott died Monday at age 49. The New York City medical examiner’s office has ruled her death was a suicide. The statement asked for privacy for Mick Jagger and his family “during this very difficult time”.
Mick Jagger, 70, called L’Wren Scott his “lover and best friend” in a Facebook tribute and said he was struggling to come to grips with her death.
L’Wren Scott had been dating Mick Jagger since 2001.
