Beyonce to sing national anthem at Obama's second inauguration

Beyonce will sing the national anthem at the presidential inauguration.

It’s the second time the singer — a vocal supporter of President Obama during last year’s election — has been tapped to perform at the inaugural festivities. The pop star famously serenaded the president and Michelle Obama with the Etta James hit “At Last” for the couple’s first dance at a 2009 inaugural ball.

James Taylor, who lent his voice to the Democratic National Convention in September, will reportedly perform “America the Beautiful.”
