Sing this (not implying anybody deserves hell, I'd just love to see their faces if you did)





Okay, jokes aside. This is my favorite song about death out there:




It doesn't mention the afterlife, only the part about remembering the one that is gone. You can comfort your family with that Dave Mustaine is currently a crazy christian (but he wasn't that crazy when he wrote this song). You might need a guitar to back you up though, that can be downside to it.

"Heaven for the Weather" by The Streets would be also useful for this occasion.

Hell for the company!
I wanna go to Heaven for the weather,
but Hell seems like fun to me"!

You could sing this without being offensive to anyone:

People are going to be angry with you for singing a Christian song in your grandmother's honor at her funeral because they don't think you're enough of a believer? They can go fuck themselves. This is between you and your grandmother.

If they want to hear one of those songs, let them get up on stage and sing them. The performer decides the set, period.

Do the song that she would have wanted you to sing. If she had no preference then sing what you would want.

While funerals are for the living, they work as a reminder of who and what the deceased person was. That includes their tastes and the music that they liked. It's a way of remembering the totality of their life in order to move on and accept that nothing will be added to it from now on.

If you are worried about what people may think then say beforehand that this is the song that you think she would have been most pleased to know was being sung at her funeral.

The funeral is about your grandmother, not you.

Sing the damned song. I gather she had a song in mind?

If not sing anything you like. Provided it reflects the deceased, not the vocalist.
