Four years ago, Jackie Evancho, a 16-year-old little-known soprano who gained fame with her participation in the television contest America's Got Talent , sang the national anthem at the president's inauguration . The teenager, who already participated in the Obama Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2010, was one of the few who agreed to participate in his inauguration, after renowned artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Elton John or Céline Dion rejected go. A very different panorama from that experienced by Donald Trump is presented this Wednesday for the inauguration of Joe Biden , who will take his oath in a ceremony marked by restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic and with greater security due to serious incidents on January 6, which culminated in the assault on the Capitol and left five dead and hundreds injured.

Despite being one of the most threatened investiture in the history of the United States, Biden will be accompanied by that Hollywood that at this time he has turned his back on Trump. The singer Lady Gaga will be in charge of singing the American national anthem and Jennifer Lopez will perform an artistic number in the east wing of Congress, where the ceremony will take place. “I am deeply honored to join @BidenInaugural on January 20 to sing the National Anthem and celebrate the historic inauguration of JoeBiden and KamalaHarris!” wrote Gaga following the announcement of her performance . The New Yorker, who had openly supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, has previously performed for Biden, as when she surprised Pennsylvania supporters by singing Sallow on the piano at the close of the Democrat's election campaign last November. . Lopez, for his part, celebrated it by posting red, white and blue hearts on his social networks . She had already run for the Democrat on other occasions. "For me, it's about unifying the nation again, getting rid of this hatred," Lopez said during an online conference with the now president-elect and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden. “I hate to think of my kids walking in a world where it's okay to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it's okay.”

Pop divas won't be the only artists joining Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on this very special date . Due to the changes that the pandemic and the problems with the Capitol have forced to make in this iconic appointment, there will be a television event in prime time that Tom Hanks will host and will feature the participation of celebrities such as Justin Timberlake , Demi Lovato , John Legend , Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi that aims to “show the endurance, heroism, and unified commitment of the American people to come together as a nation to heal and rebuild.”

The staging of support for Joe Biden recalls the ceremonies of previous presidents to Donald Trump who did have the support of world-renowned artists. In 2012, Barack Obama had the singer Beyoncé to sing the American anthem. And four years earlier, in 2008, Aretha Franklin, another icon of American music, participated as a guest artist . At the inauguration of George W. Bush in 2001, the organizing committee gave a concert with guests such as Ricky Martin and Jessica Simpson .

In this time, Trump has accumulated many famous detractors but also some well-known followers, such as Clint Eastwood, Kanye West and James Woods , who have not hesitated to show their support for the American
