Inauguration Music Topped Off By Beyonce

Inauguration Music Topped Off By Beyonce


Airdate: 01/21/2013

The Brooklyn Tabernacle choir gave an inspirational rendition of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."

There were stirring performances from the Lee University Festival Choir, and the choir of PS 22 on New York's Staten Island.

It was bitterly cold for the performers. James Taylor blew on his hands as he walked up to the podium to sing "America the Beautiful."

Kelly Clarkson belted out "My Country 'Tis of Thee" as pop culture mingled with patriotism.

The highlight was Beyonce.

The songs accompanied by the US Marine band closed the Inauguration ceremony with a rousing arrangement of of "The Star Spangled Banner." At one point, apparently distracted by her earpiece, she wrenched it out without missing a beat before the inspiring finish.
