Beyonce can always be counted on for amazing vocals, whether she’s performing as a guest on American Idol or recording an album with her Destiny’s Child girls. Today, the singer performed a stunning rendition of the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony.
President Obama enjoys listening to a wide range of music, which is why the set list for his inauguration festivities includes performances from Kelly Clarkson, Brad Paisley, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, and of course, the lovely Beyonce Knowles. Selected to sing the National Anthem at the end of the 2013 inauguration ceremony, Beyonce was feeling a bit nervous as the big event approached. She told Zap2It that, although worried about messing up the lyrics, Beyonce was also excited. “I feel like I love this song. Of course it is really emotional and nothing is more emotional than when singing it for a cause…I love the song because the melody is so beautiful, and you have so many choices. I want to keep it really elegant.”
It looks like all that practicing was worth it — Beyonce’s National Anthem performance was absolutely amazing…and she had absolutely no problems with the lyrics. Not only were Beyonce’s vocals “elegant” as she’d hoped, the singer also looked quite elegant in a black Pucci dress and a matching coat by Christian Dior. She completed the look with her signature wavy hair and a pair of bright green earrings.
