“This woman got us all here in these seats today. Not because she had this breathtaking talent, which she did…but because she lived with courage. Not without fear, but overcoming her fears,” he said.

The former President is one of many performers and speakers at the over six hour long ceremony, celebrating the life and legacy of the soul singer who sadly died earlier this month at the age of 76.
