A public memorial was created for the latter Lisa Marie Presley at her father’s Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday (January 22). Billy Corgan, Alanis Morissetteand Axl Rose was one of those who performed musical tributes to the singer, who died January 12 at age 54. The entire service, including musical sets, was streamed live by People.
Corgan was the first musical performer at the event; he played an acoustic rendition of the Smashing Pumpkins song “To Sheila.” Corgan took the stage around the 17-minute mark PeopleHere’s the video, which you can watch in full HERE.
Alanis Morissette performed next. He appeared on stage after a speech by Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Morissette was accompanied by a pianist as she sang her song “Pahulay.” He debuted the track in 2017, when he sang it at the memorial service for Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, as Rolling Stone pointed out. Later, Axl Rose sat down at the piano to perform a stripped-down version of Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain.”
Presley’s public memorial also includes words of remembrance from his mother Priscilla, Elvis’ partner Jerry Schilling, and more, as well as a note written by his daughter Riley Keough (read of Keough’s husband Ben Smith-Petersen). Presley will be buried next to his son Benjamin, who died by suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.
