Meryl Streep Sang Carrie Fisher’s Favorite Song At Her Memorial

"By the end, everyone was singing."
From: NewNowNext
On January 5th, a private memorial for Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds was held at their family compound in Coldwater Canyon in L.A.

There were 125 guests in attendance including Hollywood A-listers like Penny Marshall, Meg Ryan, George Lucas and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Eulogies were delivered by friends such as Stephen Fry, Tracey Ullman and Meryl Streep. “All the tributes circled back to Billie and how much Carrie loved her,” a family friend told People, referencing Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd.

 “Billie wanted the people her mother loved to gather in that living room one last time,” People’s source added. Fisher’s half-sisters Joely Fisher, Tricia Leigh Fisher, her brother, Todd and Billie’s father, Bryan Lourd were also in attendance. As was Gary, Fisher’s beloved dog.

 The menu at the memorial consisted of food that were staples at Fisher’s parties such as fried chicken, collard greens and cornbread. “The only things missing were Carrie and Debbie,” said the friend, who had attended many of the legendary parties at the house.

“Debbie would sit in the corner, and everyone there would come up and pay homage. Even the biggest stars were starstruck by her. Carrie would walk around barefoot with a can of Coca-Cola, making sure everyone was having a good time, saying the funniest things you’ve ever heard.”

Streep—who starred in the film Postcards From the Edge, written by Fisher—not only delivered a eulogy, but also performed Fisher’s favorite song, “Happy Days Are Here Again,” and the audience joined in.

“By the end,” said the family friend, “Everyone was singing.”

Below, watch Fisher and Reynolds sing that song as a duet during their memorable joint interview on the The Oprah Winfrey Show from 2011:

Fisher’s ashes and Reynolds were buried alongside each other at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in L.A. on January 6.
