Donda West, mother of Kanye West, was laid to rest Tuesday morning at the True Vine Ministry church in her native Oklahoma City, Access Hollywood reports.
Many of Kanye's friends and supporters attended the service, including Jay-Z and Beyoncé. R&B singer Anita Baker and John Legend performed at the private ceremony, according to the report.
Donda West's body arrived at the church in a coffin via white hearse, and after the service was taken to a cemetery by two horse-drawn carriages, the report said.
Kanye West was present at the service after flying in from two emotional dates on the European leg of his Glow in the Dark Tour.
Donda West was a native of Oklahoma and later moved to Chicago, where her son was born, to take a teaching position. She left her academic career in 2004 to co-manage Kanye and oversee many of his business dealings. He has paid tribute to her in statements and in songs throughout his career.
