The home going celebration was held at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church where family, friends, politicians and dignitaries gathered to celebrate the life of the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9. According to CNN, the sanctuary, which holds 2,500 people, was filled to capacity, with an overflow auditorium also full.

Many celebrities also flocked to St. Louis to attend the services, including Spike Lee, David Banner and Tom Joyner.
