Alicia Keys Sings ‘Obama’s on Fire’ at Inaugural Ball

Like hundreds of thousands of Americans, Alicia Keys descended upon the National Mall in Washington with her family to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama. The Grammy-winning singer watched with husband Swizz Beatz and son Egypt as Obama was sworn in for a second term.

Later in the evening, she changed into a stunning red Michael Kors gown to perform “New Day” and a special rendition of her hit “Girl on Fire” at the Commander-in-Chief’s Inaugural Ball.

She changed the lyrics especially for the occasion, singing, “He’s the president and he’s on fire … Obama’s on fire. Obama’s on fire.”

Alicia later tweeted about the special day. “Today was uplifting in everyway!! And to share it with my heartbeat made it perfectly unforgettable! Here’s to the future!;-) endless blessings!” she wrote along with a photo of Swizz.

The star-studded inaugural festivities also included performances from Stevie Wonder, Jamie Foxx, Usher, and John Legend.
