In an inauguration never before seen, complete with masks and limited spectator attendance, Pres. Joe Biden was sworn into office this past Wednesday, Jan. 20.
The ceremony consisted of many celebrity acts such as performances from Lady Gaga, J.Lo, and country singer Garth Brooks who sang the Star-Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful and This Land is Your Land, and Amazing Grace, respectively.
Los Angeles native and National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman was another highlight presenter as she recited her poem, ‘The Hill We Climb.’
A late-night celebration of musical performances followed suit the same day on television, hosted by Tom Hanks and included many other celebrity acts.
