Thousands Pay Tribute to James Brown

Thousands of people have gathered in the Harlem district of New York to pay tribute to American soul star James Brown, who died on Monday aged 73.
Fans sang and danced to his music while his gold casket was carried through the streets on a horse-drawn carriage.
His body lay in state at the Apollo theatre, a venue he loved.
Among those paying their respects was black civil rights leader, Reverend Al Sharpton, who said James Brown changed the beat of music all over the world.
