PHOTOS from DMX's star studded memorial! Kanye West leads Sunday Service Choir!!

The life and legacy of rapper DMX was immortalized on Saturday in a star-studded memorial service in Brooklyn, two weeks after the 50-year-old hip-hop icon died of a heart attack.
Fellow rap stars Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, and Eve were among the big names who attended the two-hour ceremony at the Barclays Center where DMX's shiny red casket was displayed following a funeral procession from Yonkers - where the rapper grew up. The service at the arena was closed to the public and restricted to close friends and family due to coronavirus restrictions, but was livestreamed on DMX's YouTube channel. 
The speakers included friends Swizz Beatz and Nas, as well as DMX's daughter, who rapped in honor of her father. West's Sunday Service Choir kicked off the ceremony with a gospel performance. The hoodie sweatshirt-wearing ensemble performed a few songs, including their arrangement of 'Excellent' and Soul II Soul's 'Keep On Movin'.' 
The choir took the stage during other moments of the ceremony, performing 'Ultralight Beam' and Whitney Houston's assisted vocals on the hymn 'Jesus Loves Me.'
