A second service will be held in Houston on Thursday at St. Episcopal Church. The Oak Ridge Boys confirmed on twitter that they will perform “Amazing Grace” during the service. 

In an interview with our CBS affiliate in Boise , the band said they began singing for President Bush in 1982 and continued doing so whenever they were asked. 

Following the service in Houston, he will be taken via a train bearing his name to his final resting place at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library.
