Pop princess Britney Spears has made her first visit to church, since her whirlwind Las Vegas wedding to childhood pal Jason Alexander.

The singer, whose marriage to Alexander was subsequently annulled, broke down in tears during the service in Inglewood, California.

Britney, 22, and her mum held hands and sobbed as hymns were sung, and then walked to the front when the pastor asked people who felt "moved" to come forward.

Another member of the congregation says, "She was in sunglasses, but there was no hiding her tears.

"As the hymns rang out she began to cry.

"It must have brought back memories of her wedding."
