Hundreds of friends, family, fans and high-profile dignitaries have gathered at the DJ Thomas Hall in Alberton to bid farewell to jazz legend Thandi Klaasen.

Klaasen died at the age of 86 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

The musician and political stalwart will be laid to rest at the Thomas Nkosi Memorial Park, Heroes Acre in Boksburg.

It has been an emotionally-charged service as those close to Klaasen fondly remembered the contribution she made to the country through music.

High-profile personalities including former President Thabo Mbeki, Dorothy Masuku, Caiphus Semenya and Abigail Kubheka are at the service.
