Country queen Faith Hill
has been left devastated by the death of the mother who gave her up for adoption.
The singer had only started to really get to know Paula White when her mother passed away in her sleep on January 28.
Hill and her husband Tim McGraw
secretly attended the funeral in Florida earlier this month and even insisted on keeping her mother's identity a secret in the obituary.
The passing notes read, "She leaves her daughter Audrey McGRAW and her husband Samuel of Franklin, Tennessee." Audrey is Hill's real first name and Samuel is McGraw's. The couple live in Franklin.
In the 15 years since mother and daughter reunited, Hill discovered she has a half-brother, Zachary, and she was informed that her father, Edwin White, was killed in a car crash when she was about 10.
