Ross Sings At Ex-Husband's Funeral

Soul superstar DIANA ROSS put on a brave face to sing ex-husband ARNE NAESS' favourite hymn at his funeral in Oslo, Norway.

Ross, 59, belted out the first verse of AMAZING GRACE at the 21 January (04) ceremony for the 66-year-old shipping tycoon, who died on 13 January (04) when he fell while mountain-climbing in South Africa.

Ross' two sons with Naess - ROSS, 16, and EVAN, 15 - helped carry the coffin with their half-brothers.

CHAIN REACTION singer Ross laid a white wreath with a card which read, "Alone, Diane Naess."

Although their four-year marriage fizzled in 2000, they remained friendly.
