Coldplay frontman Chris Martin sang the group’s 2005 song “Til’ Kingdom Come” at the funeral of Vice President Joe Biden’s eldest son, Beau Biden. According to Entertainment Weekly, Martin volunteered to perform after learning that Biden was a fan.
Saturday’s event in Wilmington, Delaware was broadcast on TV and the web.
President Barack Obama delivered the eulogy for Biden, who died earlier this week of brain cancer.
“We do not know how long we’ve got here. We don’t know when fate will intervene. We cannot discern God’s plan. What we do know is that with every minute that we’ve got, we can live our lives in a way that takes nothing for granted,” Obama said.
