Going back to at least the 1940s, when Mickey Rooney played piano at Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1941 inauguration, marquee stars have clamored to perform at galas and celebrations that commemorate an incoming president and the peaceful transfer of power. This year, Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood and 16-year-old Jackie Evancho, among others, will sing at events marking the inauguration of Donald J. Trump. Here, we look back at notable performances, from Linda Ronstadt regaling Jimmy Carter with "Crazy" to Beyoncé singing the National Anthem for Obama, over the decades.
