Axl Rose, Sarah Ferguson and Alanis Morissette were among those who contributed to Lisa Marie Presley’s memorial service on Sunday. For example, Ferguson, the ex-wife of Britain’s Prince Andrew, gave a speech to her good friend. Lisa Marie died at the age of 54 from complications of cardiac arrest.
Thousands of fans attended the funeral service at Graceland. Ferguson, 63, addressed Lisa Marie’s children during the ceremony. “For Riley, Harper, Finley and Ben, but for everyone: We’re marching forward,” said the Brit. “We will help you, you just have to reach out your hand and I will be there.”
Ferguson previously said he was shocked by the sudden death of “her faithful friend” Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child. “I will think of you every day,” Ferguson wrote in a social media post. “We’ve been loyal friends for years. I am there for your family to support them. I am deeply saddened. I carry you in my heart.”
Axl Rose and Alanis Morissette also joined in what the family called the “celebration” of Lisa Marie’s life. The Guns ‘n Roses singer performed the song ‘November Rain’, while Alanis Morissette performed her song ‘Rest’.
Also attending was Austin Butler, the actor who played Elvis in last year’s film of the same name. He went to Graceland with his girlfriend, model Kaia Gerber, for the funeral. Butler, 31, left E! shortly after Lisa Marie’s death. News knows he “forever cherishes” their time together. He spoke of a “tragic” and “unexpected loss” and thought of the relatives. “Her warmth, her love and her authenticity will always be remembered.”
