The Queen of Disco's private funeral ceremony took place in Nashville, Tennessee as was attended by 1000 guests including music producers David Foster and Giorgio Moroder.

David Foster - who produced a lot of music with Donna - participated in a song called 'The Prayer'.

Giorgio Moroder produced several tracks with the late star, including 'Love to Love You Baby' and 'I Feel Love.'

According to the funeral program document obtained by TMZ her siblings sung 'We've Come This Far By Faith' and Donna's brother Ricky Gaines made a speech.

Her female friends also shared anecdotal ''girlfriend stories'' at the celebration of her life attended by her entire family, according to the website.

The program also included a Psalm dedicated to Donna about ''a wife of noble character.''

A musical tribute was paid to Donna at the Billboard Music Awards 2012 on Sunday with Natasha Bedingfield singing 'Last Dance'.
