James Taylor will be among the performers at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony, along with Beyoncé and Kelly Clarkson.
According to the website Politico and other sources, Taylor will perform “America the Beautiful,” while Beyoncé will perform the national anthem and Clarkson will sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.”
Taylor was a constant presence on the stump during President Obama’s most recent campaign, and also delivered a primetime performance during the 2012 Democratic National Convention. And of course, Beyoncé famously serenaded the president and wife Michelle Obama with the Etta James classic “At Last” during the couple’s first dance at the 2009 Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.
President Obama will be sworn in for his second term in office at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 21.
