Lady Gaga gave a soaring performance our National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” during President Joe Biden And Vice President Kamala Harris’ Inauguration on Wednesday (Jan. 20), live from Washington, D.C.
Donning a beautiful navy and crimson red ballgown, Gaga ushered in Biden’s inauguration with an exceptional performance of the national anthem.
“Singing our National Anthem for the American People is my honor,” Gaga tweeted ahead of her performance. “I will sing during a ceremony, a transition, a moment of change—between POTUS 45 and 46. For me, this has great meaning.”
