Watch Reba McEntire Sing ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ at President George H.W. Bush Funeral
Reba McEntire joined the Oak Ridge Boys as singers at President George H.W. Bush's Texas funeral on Thursday morning (Dec. 6). The singer and recent Kennedy Centers Honoree performed "The Lord's Prayer."
KTRK-TV in Houston has the full program for the President's services at the St. Martin's Episcopal Church. Six of the 41st president's granddaughters were scheduled to speak, in addition to several eulogies, including one from his grandson, George P. Bush. The Oak Ridge Boys kept their promise to perform "Amazing Grace," while McEntire sang "The Lord's Prayer" toward the end of the service. There were just three items listed after she finished, including a blessing by the Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle.
After Bush's Nov. 30 death, McEntire was one of many country singers who shared memories of his legacy on social media. On Instagram, she posted several photos using the hashtag #greatpresident and #greatfriend. "My favorite," she wrote on a picture of the two of them she shared on Dec. 1.She also recalled the former president's appearance at the CMA Awards in 1991 and meeting him again several years later with Brad Paisley and many more dignitaries.
McEntire and Brad Paisley also met President Bush at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo in 2014. Dozens of country stars have offered similarly touching memories on social media in the last week, including Tim McGraw, Charlie Daniels, John Rich and Paisley.
Much like Wednesday's service in Washington D.C., Bush's entire funeral service was available for public viewing via livestream.
