Sunday, January 18, 2009 in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial, celebrities gathered to celebrate the beginning of history in the making. Although, the journey started almost 2 years ago when President-Elect Barack Obama started this campaign and succeeded thus far since November 4, 2008. He will now be swarn into office this Tuesday, January 20, 2009 with the support of the American people (notice I did say American People) also support from his lovely wife, Michelle Obama, and children, 10-year old Malia and 7-year old Sasha, and many others. Vice President-Elect Joe Biden was alongside his wife Jill Biden as they celebrated the renewal of this nation.
The families sat to the sideline as they watched proudly so many speeches and performances made by some of the best of all time. From comedians, to actors/actresses, or musicians/singers. This was indeed a time to remember. You can watch and celebrate this moment on HBO most likely this rest of this week. Celebrities from Beyonce’, Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington, U2, Stevie Wonder, Usher, Shakira, Sheryl Crow, Wil.i.am, Queen Latifah, and so many more came out.
The crowd was huge and anticipating every moment from the entrance of the presidency party themselves, to the opening performance of Springsteen, Obama and Biden both speaking, and the end as Beyonce showcased “America The Beautiful”. Even the unexpected impression of Obama’s speech on election night from Jamie Fox; Obama just laughed. He being the fool that he is and always no shame in his game, urged “Chi-town to stand up”, having the family rise to their feet, clapping and laughing. Check out some of the moments mentioned beginning history:
