(Video) Watch US President Barack Obama sing at Reverend Pinckney's Funeral


Charleston, June 27: It is probably the first time that a country's premier has sung at a funeral. Post the Charleston killing, President Obama delivered a heartwarming eulogy yesterday at the funeral of Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a Democratic member of the South Carolina Senate.

Pinckney was shot down along with eight others at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church June 17 during a Bible study he was hosting. Obama's address was repeatedly interrupted by applauses but all was silent when he started singing the anthem "Amazing Grace".
