Grieving Mick Jagger Sings Tribute to L’Wren Scott at Emotional Memorial

Grieving Mick Jagger Tribute to LwrenMick Jag­ger is still doing every­thing he can to honor his long­time girl­friend, fash­ion designer L’Wren Scott, whose life trag­i­cally was trag­i­cally cut short at the age of 49 when she unex­pect­edly com­mit­ted sui­cide back in March 2014. The celebrity cou­ple had been together for 13 years before her death.

On May 2, fam­ily and friends, includ­ing a few famil­iar celebrity faces, gath­ered at a church in Man­hat­tan for a mov­ing memo­r­ial ser­vice in honor of L’Wren Scott. Mick Jagger’s fam­ily par­tic­i­pated in the ser­vice, with his son pre­sent­ing a poem and two of his grand­chil­dren read­ing Psalm 23.

Mick Jag­ger gave an emo­tional speech dur­ing which he praised his late girl­friend for her admirable work ethic, telling guests that he was always in awe of her fash­ion shows and how pre­cise she was about mak­ing sure every­thing went well. Accord­ing to a state­ment from his rep, Jag­ger broke down on sev­eral occa­sions, but com­posed him­self by shar­ing light­hearted sto­ries from his rela­tion­ship with L’Wren Scott.

Sev­eral other celebrity guests spoke, includ­ing actresses Sarah Jes­sica Parker and Ellen Barkin, before Mick Jag­ger paid a per­sonal trib­ute to his late girl­friend with his ren­di­tion of “Just Like a Woman,” orig­i­nally sun by Bob Dylan. Although it wasn’t one of his own Rolling Stones songs, the 70-year-old rocker admit­ted that it was one of L’Wren Scott’s favorites.

Mick Jag­ger was on tour in Aus­tralia with the Rolling Stones when he found out about L’Wren Scott’s death and rushed back home to the U.S. The band halted their tour, but has since decided to resume it in Octo­ber 2014.

In the mean­time, Jag­ger has report­edly been spend­ing some time on the island of Mus­tique, one of the hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions that the celebrity cou­ple fre­quented, with his old­est daugh­ter to help him work through her death. “It’s the per­fect place for him to start his recov­ery, which is going to take a long time,” said one insider. “He may never truly come to terms with what has hap­pened, but he’s in the best place for him right now.”
