What an honor! Kelly Clarkson will be performing at the U.S. Capitol at President Obama’s 2nd inauguration ceremony. How many singers can say they’ve done THAT in their career? Go Kelly go!
Beyonce is scheduled to sing the National Anthem, while Kelly Clarkson will sing “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.” Singer James Taylor has been tapped to sing “America the Beautiful.”
USA Today reports that all this will take place during the public swearing-in ceremonies on the Capitol steps, when President Obama delivers his second inaugural address before a crowd likely to top more than 1 million. Obama will officially take the oath of office at the White House on Jan. 20, as per the Constitution, but the repeat swearing-in ceremony, the inaugural parade, the lunch with Congress and the inaugural balls will take place on Monday.
