Robbie Williams sings at manager's funeral

Robbie Williams performed at his long-time manager David Enthoven's funeral on Thursday (25.08.16).

The 42-year-old pop star - who had worked with David since his Take That days in the mid-1990s - joined over 700 mourners in Chelsea, London, for the service for the beloved music executive, who died of cancer earlier this month.

According to Mirror Celeb, Robbie teamed up with his long-term songwriting partner Guy Chambers, who played guitar, to sing 'Moon River', while Lucy Pullin sang his song 'Angels', backed by a full choir.

And fellow pop star Lemar sang a version of 'Jerusalem' at the service.

A pamphlet for the funeral paid tribute to David, who was 72 when he died.

It stated: "As you walk, I shall be with you, cheering you in all that you do.

"I shall love and care for you forever as I have always done.

"So love life, live it all to the full for I shall be there laughing with you just like I did yesterday...

"We will miss you David. I hope we'll meet again some day."

Robbie previously paid tribute to David on social media following his death.

He tweeted: "My Friend, Mentor and Hero passed away today. David Enthoven I love you RIP x (sic)"

Back in 2007, Robbie sent a video message to David and his business partner Tim Clark after they won the Robertson Taylor 'Peter Grant' Award for outstanding achievement at the Music Managers Forum Awards.

He said in the video: "I just want to express how much I love you and how much you mean to me.

"Ie:music is the best kept secret in the music industry. As luck and fate would have it God put me in the hands of two of the most capable men in the industry today.

"I definitely wouldn't be as healthy as I am today if it wasn't for you. When I grow up I want to be like you. I will never go anywhere else. You've got me for life."
