Kelly Clarkson will also be on hand to sing “America (My Country ‘Tis of Thee)” at today’s Presidential Inauguration. She says when she got the invitation she was “pretty floored. She told The Country Vibe, “It’s pretty amazing because I voted for him twice so it’s cool that I get to like support, not only with my vote but also at the event. And it’s such an historical time in a President’s term, like it’s just such a cool thing. I don’t know, I’m stoked on many levels, just to be a part of history and to also just to support someone I think can help change our lives for the better.”
Beyonce and James Taylor will also perform at today’s second inauguration ceremony.
