The private funeral for Amy Winehouse was held today (July 26) at the Edgwarebury Cemetery in North London, BBC News reports. Producer Mark Ronson, friend Kelly Osbourne, and boyfriend Reg Traviss were the most famous guests among the estimated 300 to 400 attendees. Osbourne and others wore their hair in Amy’s iconic beehive style in honor of the late singer, who died Saturday (July 23) at the age of 27.

Amy’s father, Mitch, read a eulogy that ended with, “Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much.” Prayers were recited in both English and Hebrew, a nod to Amy’s Jewish heritage, and the service concluded with a version of Carole King‘s “So Far Away.”
