Washington/Canadian-Media: Present at Joe Biden's inauguration would be pop superstar Lady Gaga who will sing the national anthem when Joe Biden is sworn in as the nation's 46th president of United States next Wednesday.
In a tweet, Lady Gaga wrote: "I am deeply honored to be joining @BidenInaugural on January 20 to sing the National Anthem and celebrate the historic inauguration of @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris!"
It was also reported that Jennifer Lopez will give a musical performance, while former National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman will perform her poetry on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol.
Appointed as the first National Youth Poet Laureate in April 2017, Gorman will become the first inaugural poet since Richard Blanco, who read his poem “One Today” at Barack Obama’s 2013 inaugural.
Amanda’s reading will reflect and amplify the overarching theme of the presidential inauguration, “America United,” which, according to the Inaugural Committee, “reflects the beginning of a new national journey that restores the soul of America, brings the country together, and creates a path to a brighter future.”

The 90-minute "Celebrating America" inauguration show to be hosted by Tom Hanks featuring more musical performances, will be broadcast on all major US networks, said reports.
