On Jan. 9, news came that Beyonce will lend a hand at the latest Obama inauguration to be held in front of the Capitol. In what can be considered a great honor, the renowned singer will perform the national anthem prior to the official ceremony honoring the United States President before he takes office for the second time.
But the pop diva is not alone when it comes to the entertainment booked for this very special occasion to take place in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 21. Both Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor have also been tapped to offer a tune as Barack begins another term.
By way of background, Beyonce and husband Jay-Z had Obama's back both this time and the first time he made a bid to be the nation's President. As an example, the fabled couple were behind a huge New York City-based fundraising effort this past year prior to Obama's win against his Republican opponent.
Meanwhile, in 2009, Beyonce was also part of the Barack Obama inauguration when she crooned a number at the first of the requisite balls as Michelle and her husband danced to one of her biggest hits called "At Last," a song the President has said is one of his favorites.
And so, as Beyonce belts out another, even more familiar tune called "The Stat Spangled Banner" for a really important Obama gig, Barack's second term will get underway after the entire world gets to enjoy this celebrated singer's strong and true voice.
