Beyonce performing for Obama

Jan 9 2013, 2:30pm CST | by

Beyonce Knowles is performing at US President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

The 'Diva' singer - who performed at his first inauguration in 2009 and supported him throughout his campaign for a second term - is set to sing the National Anthem at the prestigious event.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee told USA Today that Kelly Clarkson will also perform 'My Country Tis of Thee', while James Taylor will sing 'America The Beautiful' on the West Front of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. on January 21.

The 51-year-old President said in a statement: "Vice President Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony. Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country."

Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z with whom she shares one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy - also performed a cover of Etta James' 'At Last' for the President and First Lady Michelle Obama during the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball four years ago.

The 31-year-old singer has long been one of the President's most high profile supporters.

She wrote a letter of praise for him ahead of last November's US presidential election, in which she credited him with inspiring the future generation, including her own daughter.

She wrote: "Every day we see your heart and character, inspiring us to give more of ourselves.

You are the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be. You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.

"All my respect and adoration, Beyonce."

She also designed a T-shirt to raise money for President Obama's re-election campaign.

I Don’t Understand Why Everyone Is Obsessing Over The ‘Shake It Off’ Video

Aug 22 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Taylor Swift dropped a ton of bombshells on us earlier this week: a single, music video and release date for her next album. Now, it was no Beyoncé move, but people are pretty amped up about this news. So the SHEfinds staff had to see for themselves what the fuss is all about. We watched the "Shake It Off" video yesterday and our reaction was unanimous: "THIS is what everyone is obsessing over?" I just don't get it. Yes, I will admit, the so ...

I Didn’t Go To College To Write About Kardashians, Yet I Do It Because It’s My Job

Aug 22 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Bride Finds

Writing about celebrities is fun. And I do feel a little guilty about it. I always knew, even when I was a little kid – 5 years old– that I wanted to write. Though for a long time, I didn't know about what. I thought fiction at first, but quickly realized that that wouldn't pay anyone's bills. It's not like I wanted to be some political analyst for the Washington Post, but I wanted to write about something relevant. I was always draw ...

Beyonce and Kim Kardashian “Avoiding” Each Other At VMAs?

Aug 22 2014 10:56am CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Getty Images) HollywoodLife is apparently bored, because it’s making up sh*t about Kim Kardashian and Beyonce. So, what’s going on? Well, the webloid has spent much of the last day or so bragging about having “exclusive” knowledge of the seating arrangement for Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, which is (1) pathetic and (2) untrue. HollywoodLife has “exclusive” access to the VMAs like they have “ex ...
