Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, former presidents and members of Congress gathered Wednesday in Washington as Joe Biden was sworn in as the country’s 46th president.
J.Lo sang a bilingual rendition of “This Land Is Your Land” outside the U.S. Capitol, quoting “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all…” in Spanish.
In a tweet posted a day earlier, the “Let’s Get Loud” singer posed with National Guard troops. She captioned her post: “What an honor to spend a few moments with these brave men and women. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. I honor you today and everyday. Tomorrow I sing for you and all Americans.”

During the inauguration, Lady Gaga sang the national anthem and was visibly emotional after her performance ended. She wore a lavish black and red gown, with a gold dove pin holding an olive branch.
Following Lady Gaga’s performance, California Sen. Kamala Harris was sworn in as vice president. She is the first woman, first African American and first person of Asian descent to hold the office. Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff has also made history, becoming America’s first second gentleman.
In his inaugural address, President Biden asked for national unity in a country that saw a deadly insurrection at the Capitol two weeks ago and is currently reeling from the coronavirus pandemic.
After Biden’s remarks, country superstar Garth Brooks performed “Amazing Grace.” Amanda Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history, recited her poem “The Hill We Climb.”
Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton and former first ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton were also in attendance.
