Reba’s Friendship with Bush, Renders an Emotional Hymn

President George H. W. Bush was put to rest in Houston, Texas. His funeral service took place at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, where he and his wife, Barbara, spent half a century worshipping.

Family, friends, and special guests gathered to celebrate his life. Among those who took part in the celebration of Bush’s legacy were country music artists. Reba and The Oak Ridge Boys were there to extend their condolences and show their love to the late president.

As for Reba, she shared a good relationship with the Bush family. Much more, she and Barbara Bush and her husband were close friends. Hence, when Barbara passed away, Reba expressed her heartfelt condolences to the Bush family. Now that the Bush family is grieving again, the country music legend yet again personally honored her dear friend, George.

At the funeral, Reba took the floor to render her tribute to the late president. As she started the tune, “The Lord’s Prayer,” she found herself a bit choked up as she grieved the loss of her friend. On the other hand, George W. Bush couldn’t contain his emotions as tears rolled from his eyes. He was moved by the heartfelt rendition.

After singing, Reba shared her emotions before the crowd.

“It was an honor and privilege to sing at President George H. W. Bush’s funeral this morning. He was a great friend and leader and I will never forget the time we shared together.”
