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.

Thanks to naked butts, wonder boobs, space fists, homewrecking and the collapse of civilization as we know it, I only just now got around to watching the Mad Max: Road Fury trailer from Comic-Con that everyone’s been losing their shit over.

And here we though we would never ever know the reason Beyonce’s sister Solange flippef her sh*t on Jay Z in an elevator on May 5th in NYC. It seemed that it would be a secret that the trio would take to the grave. Was it something he said? Or something he did? Or maybe it was someone he did behind his wife’s back?!?!? Originally it was speculated that Rachel Roy, fashion, designer was the cause of the elevator drama. Apparently Jay’s relationsh ...

Last week, we learned that Jay Z and Beyonce‘s marriage is pretty much over because he constantly cheats on her, and now comes even more specific information that it’s with Rihanna, so I can’t imagine where it’s all coming from. It’s not like it’s practically a first-hand account. Except, oh wait. Page Six reports: The source says the elevator fight after the Met Ball was really over Jay’s protégé Rihanna, whom he allegedly planned to meet later that night at his 40/40 club. “Solange was like, ‘ ...
