Singing "Just As I Am" during the service, Michael said he had "no words to fully describe the emotions from this morning. So grateful!"
 
Also participating in today's service to pay tribute were President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell. Present at the service were Vice President Mike Pence, numerous Cabinet officials, senators, House members and Rev. Graham's family members. The full service can be viewed at https://youtu.be/FQ3730ZOIaQ.
 

 
Following the news of Rev. Graham's death last week, Michael wrote on his Facebook, "Friend, mentor, counselor, hero, leader, example, pastor -- he was so many things to me, making the impact of his passing such a deep hurt. At the same time, I know Billy would be questioning why we grieve. Because he is now in paradise. He is face to face with the Jesus he so loved and served so well."
 
Michael shares more memories of and photos with Rev. Graham, as well as detail on his USA Today, Billboard, Yahoo! Music and NewReleaseToday-acclaimed studio album A Million Lights (released Feb. 16) and his 5-star-acclaimed, Parade-featured live worship album Surrounded (released Feb. 23), on his website www.michaelwsmith.com and his socials.
