Diana Ross Sings At Her Ex-Husbands Funeral
After ending their four-year marriage in 2000, Diana Ross chose to honour her late ex-husband by singing 'Amazing Grace' after he died in a climbing accident.
Diana Ross, the acclaimed soul superstar, attended her ex-husband Arne Naess' funeral to sing his favourite hymn. The 59-year-old singer put on a brave face for the service in Oslo, Norway, on 21st January, 2004. The 66-year-old died on 13th January, 2004, in a mountain-climbing accident in South Africa.
Ross and Naess were married for four years, although it came to an end in 2000. The couple had two children, Ross and Evan, and remained friends after their separation. Ross and Evan both helped to carry the coffin, along with their half-brothers, while the 'Chain Reaction' singer gave a rendition of 'Amazing Grace'.
