WATCH LIVE: Rev. Billy Graham funeral

CHARLOTTE, NC (WFIE) - The Rev. Billy Graham's five adult children and some of his favorite singers were preparing to offer memories, hymns and prayers at a funeral Friday that marks the culmination of more than a week of tributes to "America's Pastor."

Mourners were already taking their seats hours before the scheduled noon start time of the service in a tent on the grounds of Graham's library in Charlotte. The invitation-only crowd of about 2,000 is expected to include President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
