Chris Martin Performs “Til Kingdom Come” At Beau Biden’s Funeral – WATCH VIDEO
Chris Martin sang Coldplay’s “Til Kingdom Come” at Beau Biden’s funeral on Saturday. The rock star gave an emotional performance at the packed service, which took place at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Wilmington, Delaware. The former Delaware Attorney General and son of Vice President Joe Biden died of brain cancer last week. Watch the video below.
Beau Biden was reportedly a fan of Coldplay, and when Chris Martin found out about this, following the Iraqi War vet’s death, he volunteered to sing in his honor. In addition to the Coldplay singer’s stirring performance, President Obama gave a eulogy at the service, saying, “We are here to grieve with you, but more importantly, we are here because we love you.”
Approximately 1,000 mourners were in attendance at Biden’s funeral, including Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Caroline Kennedy, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and numerous other politicians. As Gossip Cop earlier reported, many stars, including Cher, Mia Farrow, and Jussie Smollet, tweeted their condolences shortly after the news broke that the younger Biden had passed away.
