(CNN)Randy Travis brought the Country Music Hall of Fame audience to tears Sunday night.

The country music star, who was being inducted into the hall, took the podium and performed a few lyrics from "Amazing Grace." Travis suffered a stroke three years ago which impaired his ability to walk and affected his vocal chords.
Travis stood up from his wheel chair and -- with his wife Mary-Davis Travis and his longtime friend Garth Brooks by his side -- he sang the uplifting song. He received a standing ovation when he finished.
