“Hamilton” star Miguel Cervantes and wife Kelly Cervantes said their final goodbyes to their late daughter, Adelaide, with a celebration of life service on Sunday.
“No amount of flowers, food, alcohol or words can fill the gaping void left in Adelaide’s absence, and right now, I don’t want it to,” Kelly captioned a photo on Instagram of her and Miguel holding Adelaide.
The 3-year-old died on Oct. 12 after battling a severe form of childhood epilepsy.
Miguel and Kelly shared on Instagram last week that they were hosting a “celebration of life” service this Sunday for Adelaide and said, “All are welcome to attend in your most colorful attire.”
The event was held at the Harold Washington Chicago Public Library. Guests were encouraged to donate to the CURE Epilepsy foundation.
According to People, several of Miguel’s “Hamilton” co-stars, including Andrew Call, attended. They performed “Til the Calm Comes,” a song Miguel wrote for Adelaide.
The 40-minute ceremony included other musical numbers such as an orchestra playing The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” and “Seasons of Love” from “Rent.” There was also a performance of “Proud Corazón” from the Disney film, “Coco.”
Miguel told members of “Adelaide’s army,” “To all who touched her and comforted her and tried to save her, you will always be a part of our family. Adelaide will live on in all of us. I think she’s dancing and smiling right now.”
