Beyoncé to perform for President Obama again at inauguration


Beyoncé will take the stage to sing the national anthem at President Barack Obama's inauguration later this month. The inaugural planning committee for the Jan. 21 event announced the news on Wednesday.

Bing: Watch Beyoncé perform 'At Last'

The star performed a rendition of Etta James' "At Last" at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball when the president took office in 2009, and she has been chosen to sing for President Obama and first lady Michelle again to mark the beginning of his second term in the White House.

The singer will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the ceremony, which will take place in Washington, D.C. Kelly Clarkson will also sing at the event, performing the traditional "My Country 'Tis of Thee," which Aretha Franklin tackled for the president four years ago, and singer/songwriter James Taylor will play "America the Beautiful."
