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.

Annie Lennox: ‘Twerking is synonymous with feminism. I do not agree.’

Oct 22 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Annie Lennox is doing press these days to promote her new album, Nostalgia, which is almost entirely jazz standards and the like (think Cole Porter and Gershwin). Usually I think the whole idea of pop singers putting out jazz-standard albums is a pretty blatant money-grab/relevancy-clutch, but in Annie’s case… I’d really like to hear her do Gershwin and Cole Porter. I imagine it’s enchanting because Annie is a goddess/icon/queen. The last ...
