The Romanian Orthodox Church will not give a full burial service for a popular singer because she committed suicide.

The church says a single priest will perform a simple service for Madalina Manole in a church courtyard. The church considers suicide "a grave sin."

Manole will be buried Friday in her hometown of Ploiesti north of Bucharest.

Manole died Wednesday on her 43rd birthday after drinking a powerful insecticide. Manole's husband found her body.

Manole became one of the country's best-loved artists, specializing in folk and popular music, often with romantic themes, and her death shocked Romanians.
