Web Catch: After emotional eulogy, Obama leads mourners in 'Amazing Grace'



President Barack Obama ended his eulogy honoring Reverend Clementa Pinckney by leading thousands of mourners in singing "Amazing Grace."

Rev. Pinckney was a South Carolina state senator and pastor of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston. He was one of nine people killed in a mass shooting at the historic black church on June 17.

"Through the example of their lives, they've now passed [that grace] on to us," President Obama said. "May we find ourselves worthy of that precious and extraordinary gift."

“May God continue to shed His grace on the United States of America."
