The Grammy win­ner on Thurs­day fol­lowed the Oak Ridge Boys, who were one of the pres­i­dent’s favourite mu­si­cal acts and who sang “Amaz­ing Grace” dur­ing the ser­vice at St. Martin’s Epis­co­pal Church in Hous­ton.

Celebri­ties, in­clud­ing ac­tor-politi­cian Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger, were among the mourn­ers at the church where the Bush fam­ily wor­ships. Thurs­day’s cer­e­mony was fi­nal pub­lic farewell to the 41st pres­i­dent.

Bush will be buried dur­ing a pri­vate ser­vice later Thurs­day at his fam­ily plot on the Bush pres­i­den­tial li­brary grounds at Texas A&M Univer­sity in Col­lege Sta­tion.
