Watch Obama suddenly break out into song while delivering a moving eulogy

President Barack Obama abruptly started singing “Amazing Grace” as he spoke at a Friday eulogy. 

The president spoke at the funeral for South Carolina State Sen. Clementa Pinckney (D), who was one of nine people shot last week at a historic black church in Charleston. The crowd was initially taken aback by Obama’s song, but soon joined in.
