A host of Hollywood stars gathered to pay their respects following the shock deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds.
But one star in particular paid tribute in an extra special way.
Meryl Streep is said to have performed Carrie’s favourite song, Happy Days Are Here Again. “By the end, everyone was singing,’ said a family friend.
Along with Merly, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meg Ryan, Courtney Love, George Lucas, Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephen Fry were among the famous faces who were in attendance at Carrie’s Beverly Hills home on Thursday for a private memorial service.
The afternoon gathering – which was organized by Carrie’s 24-year-old daughter, Billie - was a bittersweet throwback to the star-studded but casual parties that the Star Wars actress often threw in the eclectic, art-filled house.
‘Billie wanted the people her mother loved to gather in that living room one last time,’ a source told People.
