The entire service was infused with music. Quebec's Martin Deschamps sang 'Croire' and one of the most anticipated performances of the service, The Parachute Club's 1980's pop anthem, 'Rise Up'. Layton's personal friend, singer Lorraine Segato, belted out the tune, reportedly Jack's favourite. Segato also sang the song at Layton and Olivia's Chow's wedding.
