Celebrities pay tribute to Michael Brown at funeral

Emotions are high in Missouri as the thousands gathered to say goodbye to 18-year-old Michael Brown.
It was a day to remember the unarmed black teen shot and killed by police. Crowds were so large that at least 2,000 people mourned in outflow areas of the church.

Celebrities, politicians, including three officials from the White House attended Monday's funeral. After weeks of protests and unrest, Brown's family called for a day of peace.

Michael's father wrote, in part, "I always told you I will never let nothing happen to you. And that's what hurt sooooooo much, that I couldn't protect you but we love you. I will never let you die in my heart, you will always live forever."

David Mattingly is OutFront.
