Mick Jagger sings at memorial service for L’Wren Scott

Mick Jagger paid tribute to his longtime girlfriend and sang Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman" at a memorial service for L’Wren Scott in New York on Friday evening.

Rolling Stone reports family and friends gathered together for the memorial service at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan.

The service included tributes from Scott's brother, Randy Bambrough, her friend Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker and fashion editor André Leon Talley.

Jagger's son, James, and Scott's niece, Hannah Bambrough, both read poems and Jagger's grandchildren Mazie and Zak read Psalm 23.

Longtime Rolling Stones backup singer Lisa Fischer sang "Amazing Grace."

Scott was found dead by an apparent suicide in her New York apartment on March 17.

Jagger and The Rolling Stones postponed seven shows in Australia and New Zealand on their 14 On Fire tour following the news; the dates were recently rescheduled for October and November – see the list here.
