Lady Gaga is set to sing The Star-Spangled Banner at the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris inauguration ceremony next Wednesday, January 20.
Gaga was on the campaign trail with Joe and Kamala and her progressive and inclusive vibe is just what the ticket stands for, so it’s a good fit.
Jackie Evancho sang the National Anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017, and Beyonce sang it at Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2013.
When he was Vice President, Biden worked with Gaga on his It’s On Us awareness campaign to addess sexual assault on college campuses.
Tom Hanks is hosting a primetime inauguration special on January 20 that will air on networks including ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and CNN as well as digital players and social media platforms.
The inaugural committee confirmed the full line-up for the event on Twitter today:
