Los Angeles - Donna Summer was buried in a casket covered by white roses at her funeral on Wednesday.

The Queen of Disco's private funeral ceremony took place in Nashville, Tennessee and 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.

'Girlfriend stories'

According to the funeral programme 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 programme also included a Psalm dedicated to Donna about "a wife of noble character".

Donna passed away in Florida last week after battling lung cancer at the age of 63.

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