(AP) Beyonce will sing the national anthem at President Barack Obama's inauguration ceremony.


The committee planning the Jan. 21 event also announced Wednesday that Kelly Clarkson will perform My Country 'Tis of Thee and James Taylor will sing America the Beautiful at the swearing-in ceremony on the Capitol's west front.


Richard Blanco, the son of Cuban exiles, is the 2013 inaugural poet, joining the ranks of Maya Angelou and Robert Frost to have served in that capacity. Blanco's works explore his family's exile from their native country and the intersection of his cultural identities as a Cuban-American gay man, the inaugural planners announced.
