Obama Sings 'Amazing Grace' During Eulogy for Rev. Pinckney (Video)

President Barack Obama gives the eulogy during Rev. Clementa Pinckney‘s funeral service on Friday afternoon (June 26) in Charleston, S.C.

The President of the United States was at the service to honor the South Carolina state senator and reverend, who was killed in the Charleston church shooting last week.

“We are here today to remember a man of God who lived by faith,” Obama said. “A man who believed in things not seen. A man who believed there were better days ahead, off in the distance. A man of service who persevered knowing full well he would not receive all those things he was promised, because he believed his efforts would provide a better life for those who followed.”

Obama finished the eulogy by breaking into a rendition of “Amazing Grace.” Watch below.
