The Grammy winner Lady Gaga delivered the national anthem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in a very Gaga way with passion and fashion.
She was followed at Wednesday’s ceremony by Jennifer Lopez, with a moving medley of This Land is Your Land and America the Beautiful, throwing in a line in Spanish.
Country star Garth Brooks, sang a gospel-tinged, soulful a capella rendition of Amazing Grace. Brooks was careful to call his decision to perform on Wednesday non-political, and in the spirit of unity. Brooks performed during the inaugural celebration of Obama in 2009, but turned down a chance to play for Trump in 2017, citing a scheduling conflict.
Other Celebrities who participated in President Joe Biden’s inauguration are Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Ant Clemons, Katy Perry and many more.
The celebrity component only increased over time, and one of the starriest inaugurations was that of John F. Kennedy in 1961. The history of celebrities performing at inaugurations dates back to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s third inauguration in 1941.
