Beyonce to sing at Obama inauguration

Beyonce to sing Obamas’ inaugural first dance

Beyonce has revealed the song she’ll serenade the Obamas with in their first dance as America’s first couple: the Etta James classic, At Last.

Beyonce portrayed the legendary Blues singer in a recent biopic, and sang the song in that movie.

Now she will sing it to Barack and Michelle Obama at the Neigbourhood Ball on Tuesday night.

Beyonce said in a statement: ‘I am so honoured that I will be performing for President Obama and the first lady.

‘To sing At Last while they have their first dance is a dream come true. I could not be more honoured and excited that they have asked me to be part of this moment in history.’

The singing sensation and her music mogul hubby Jay-Z were active campaigners for Obama during the run-up to the election.
