CBS's "60 Minutes" announced it will feature former Presidents George W. Bush, Clinton and Obama on Sunday night in a tribute to George H.W. Bush, who died at the age of 94 late Friday.

"The three former U.S. leaders share their personal experiences and informed opinions of their colleague in separate interviews," reads the announcement from CBS News. "60 Minutes" correspondent and "CBS This Morning" anchor Norah O'Donnell will interview the former presidents.


"In a bonus web clip for 60 Minutes Overtime, George W. Bush recalls a poignant moment between him and his father when he spoke about 9/11 at the Washington National Cathedral days after the attack," also reads the announcement.

Included in the report will be interviews with George H.W. Bush's former secretary of state and close friend, James Baker, and historian Jon Meacham.

Congressional leaders announced Saturday that Bush will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda early this week. A bicameral arrival ceremony will be held Monday evening, with the public given the opportunity to pay their respects through Wednesday morning.

Gerald Ford was the last president to lie in state following his death in December 2006.
