The private service was held at Christ Presbyterian Church. Cameras were banned from inside the facility, but television crews scouted the scene from outside.
Summer passed away last Thursday at the age of 63.
“Her talent was a true gift to the music industry,” said Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy.
“Few singers have impacted music & the world like Donna Summer! It’s the end of an era,” singer Gloria Estefan wrote on Twitter.
“I can’t believe we’ve lost another wonderful singer,” Dolly Parton said.
“Donna, like Whitney (Houston), had one of the greatest voices ever. I loved her records. She was the disco queen, and will remain so. I knew her and found her to be one of the most likable and fun people ever. She will be missed and remembered.”
