As one of the loudest and proudest supporters, Beyonce showed her love for the President Barack Obama when she performed at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration held on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on Monday (January 21) in Washington, DC. The 31-year-old singer wore a black-embellished Emilio Pucci gown and warded off the D.C. chill with a knee-length Christian Dior coat. She completed her look with blonde waves, earrings and a ring by Lorraine Schwartz. The Grammy winner was accompanied by her husband Jay-Z to watch President Barack Obama get sworn in for his second term as the Commander in Chief. After singing "At Last" for President Barack Obama four years ago at an inaugural ball, the songstress was front and center in front of the U.S. Capitol at this year’s ceremony for the ultimate singing. Beyonce closed out the 57th inaugural ceremony with a very moving rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner," which drew cheers and applause from the huge crowd. The program also featured performances from Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor, and the P.S.22 Chorus.
