President Obama will be sworn in for another four years as Commander in Chief later this month, and the high profile artists scheduled to perform at the ceremony were unveiled today.

At the January 21 event, Beyonce will perform the coveted National Anthem, Kelly Clarkson will sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” and country artist James Taylor will share “America the Beautiful.”

The ceremony will be broadcast live presumably on all news networks, so if you’re a fan of any of these singers you’ll want to tune in. That is, if you already weren’t planning to for the sake of watching the President receive his next four years.

Beyonce and Jay Z were outspoken supporters of President Obama during his re-election campaign last year. Jay Z and Bruce Springsteen joined him for multiple events in the days leading up to Election Day.

The Inauguration will take place at the West Front of the United States Capitol. Today’s news was revealed by the Presidential Inauguration Committee, who say that additional people of interest to be present at the ceremony will be announced in the coming days.

We’ll share the artists’ performance once they’re available online. Will you be tuning in on January 21?
