2013 President Obama's Inauguration Ceremony, Beyonce Performs National Anthem
Beyonce's Inauguration Performance: Singer Belts National Anthem After Obama Takes Second Oath.The singer's performance of the National Anthem was a capstone to the official proceedings of the inauguration, and served as the marker between the events on the steps of the capitol and the inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.
Beyonce was hardly the only performer to make an impression over the weekend. Kelly Clarkson sang "My Country 'Tis of Thee" immediately after Barack Obama delivered his inaugural address and James Taylor sang "America the Beautiful."
