Friends Support Kanye West as Mom is Laid to Rest

Kanye West got some much-needed support from his music biz friends, as he attended his mom's funeral, in Oklahoma yesterday. According to Access Hollywood, Beyonce and Jay-Z were in attendance at the True Vine Ministry church, while superstars John Legend, Anita Baker and Common performed at Donda West's funeral. During the three-hour service, Kanye addressed the crowd of people who came to honor his mom, reportedly thanking them for their love and support. He also said that if his mom was looking down on the funeral, she would have demanded he get up and speak. And so he did. The emotional rapper said he wanted his beloved mom to not "rest in peace, but rest in paradise."
