A group of friends, family and fans paid tribute to mother-daughter actors Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds at a memorial service in Los Angles.

The service took place on Saturday at Forest Lawn cemetery, reports variety.com.

The tribute spanned decades of Hollywood history, with a hip-hop version of Singin’ in the rain, collage of candid family photographs, and an appearance by fictional robot character R2D2.

“My mother didn’t like funerals and memorials. She liked shows,” said Todd Fisher, who organised the tribute to his mother and sister.
