Chris Martin, the front man for Coldplay and boyfriend of actress Jennifer Lawrence, sang at the funeral of Vice-President Biden's son, Beau Biden, in Wilmington, Delaware on Saturday.

Delaware Online reports that Martin volunteered to sing at the funeral after learning that Beau Biden was a big Coldplay fan.

Singing the band's 2005 hit song, 'Til Kingdom Come,' Chris Martin wasn't the only big name at the funeral. President Barack Obama delivered a eulogy. Bill and Hillary Clinton were in attendance as well.

Martin sang solo against a backdrop of white flowers in the pulpit of the Catholic church where Beau Biden was remembered by a huge crowd.

Chris Martin sang just before the closing prayer at Beau Biden's funeral. He hugged both Vice-President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, after his performance.

Beau Biden died on May 30th of brain cancer. He was just 46 years old.
