Posted Friday, April 11th 2014 @ 2pm  by by Kelsey Carlson

Chris Martin ushered Peter Gabriel into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last night with some selective "scripture" and a performance of "Washing of the Water." Martin recited from the book of 'Genesis:'

"And Phil The Collins said unto him, “Who are you, oh angel?” And the angel replied, “I am Gabriel.” … “Ye shall be the singer of Genesis now.” And the Phil that was called Collins was awestruck in the presence of the angel and replied, “How can this be, oh angel? I am but a humble drummer. I can’t dance. I can’t talk. The only thing about me is the way I walk."

After a few more heartfelt and humorous words Martin and Gabriel performed "Washing of the Water," together. Check out the performance below!
