After 25 incredible years and nearly 50,000 guests, guests including President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Tony Bennett, Barbara Walters, Ryan Seacrest, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Maher said goodbye to the silver screen icon in an emotionally charged farewell.

The laughter at King’s swansong came from his two children.
