U2 - "Pride (In the Name of Love)" to Dr. King - The Obama Inaugural Celebration Concert

Samuel L. Jackson speaks of Martin Luther King Jr. and the speech he gave at the Lincoln Memorial and that leads to Irish rockers U2 -- arguably the world's biggest band -- playing their tribute to Dr. King Pride (In the Name of Love).

As U2 finishes Pride, Bono shouts "let freedom ring!" and tells Obama that it's an honor for "four boys from Dublin" to sing for him.
