WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC)
announced today the initial talent lineup for the Kids’ Inaugural
concert on Saturday, January 19 and the official Inaugural balls on
Monday, January 21. The events will be held at the Walter E. Washington
Convention Center and will highlight the Obama and Biden families’
support for our military service men and women.

The events will include appearances by Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, Far
East Movement, fun., members of the cast of Glee, John Legend, Katy
Perry, Marc Anthony, Mindless Behavior, Nick Cannon, Soul Children of
Chicago, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, and Usher.

“We are honored and excited to have such a diverse, talented group of
musical guests joining Americans from across the country to celebrate
the 57th Inauguration,” said Steve Kerrigan, President and CEO of the
Presidential Inaugural Committee.

On Saturday, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden will host
the Kids’ Inaugural for America’s children and families as part of their
ongoing commitment to our military families. The concert continues a
tradition they started in 2009 that builds on initiatives like Joining
Forces by honoring and celebrating the service and sacrifice of our U.S.
military as part of official inaugural activities.

On Monday, the PIC will host two official inaugural balls. The
Commander-in-Chief’s Ball for members of the U.S. military, including
active duty and reserve service men and women, Medal of Honor
recipients, and wounded warriors and their spouses, among others, will
continue a tradition started by President George W. Bush in 2005. The
2013 Commander-in-Chief’s Ball will have a significantly larger
footprint than that of 2009, nearly doubling in size, and tickets for
invited military guests will be provided free of charge by the PIC.

Also on Monday, Americans from across the country will be invited to
share in a unified celebration at The Inaugural Ball, which brings
members of the public together with grassroots volunteers, local
community leaders and supporters, various organizations, and local and
state elected leaders. The Inaugural Ball will use every Hall in the
Convention Center, and together with the Commander-in-Chief’s Ball, the
same space where six inaugural balls were held in 2009 will be used.

In addition to today’s news, PIC previously announced Beyoncé, Kelly
Clarkson, and James Taylor will perform at the Inauguration ceremony on
the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on January 21, when President Obama
and Vice President Biden will be sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice
John Roberts and Associate Justice Sonia Sbillotomayor. Other
ceremonial participants include Myrlie Evers-Williams, who will give the
invocation, and Richard Blanco, who will serve as the Inaugural poet.
Program and talent details specific to each event will be released in the coming days.
