Beyoncé to Sing at Obama Inauguration

Beyoncé will sing for Barack and Michelle Obama’s first dance on inauguration night on Tuesday.

It is unknown which song she will perform for the President-elect and future first lady just yet. “It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment,” Presidential Inaugural Committee spokeswoman Linda Douglass told The Associated Press.

Beyoncé is also part of the lineup for the official Neighborhood Ball that will air on ABC with performances by Jay-Z, will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, and Maroon 5.

“I’m there. I can’t wait. I feel like all of us, we’re ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want—if they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I’m there, and I’m ready. I’ve never been so patriotic! I’m just beyond excited,” the “Diva” said back in November.

UPDATE: Beyoncé has revealed that she will sing Etta James’ “At Last” during the new first couple’s first dance.

“To sing ‘At Last’ while [the Obamas] have their first dance is a dream come true,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.”
