Beyoncé to Sing National Anthem at Obama Inauguration

Before she heads to the Super Bowl next month, Beyoncé will put her patriotic pride on display when she performs the national anthem at the second inauguration of President Obama.

The “Single Ladies” singer has been tapped by the inaugural committee to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the inaugural ceremony on January 21 in Washington, D.C. Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor will also perform patriotic songs at the event, with more performers to be announced.

Beyoncé previously performed “At Last” for the Obamas when they shared their first dance as President and First Lady at the Neighborhood Ball in 2009. She has also worked closely with Michelle Obama on her “Let’s Move!” fitness campaign to curb childhood obesity.

Following her presidential gig, Beyoncé will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in New Orleans on February 3.
