With Taylor’s performance, it seemed to fit into the perfect pocket as he shared the moment of American price with the world.
Many dignitaries and celebrities were part of the big moment. Hollywood has long supported President Obama and the moment when he was sworn in definitely had many famous faces in the crowd. Kelly Clarkson, Marlon Wayans, Omar Epps and John Legend had great spots on the platform and were flashed on the large television screens around the Washington Mall for everyone to see.
