Beyoncé will sing "The Star Spangled Banner" at President Obama's second inauguration on January 21st, with James Taylor and Kelly Clarkson also scheduled to perform, USA Today reports.
Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z were active supporters of Obama throughout his re-election campaign: The couple hosted the President and First Lady at a fundraiser at Jay-Z's 40/40 club, while on the eve of the election Beyoncé penned an open note that praised Obama as "the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be."
All the performances will take place on the Capitol steps during the public swearing-in ceremony, where Obama will deliver his second inaugural address. Announcements regarding more inauguration day entertainment are expected to come soon.
