Stars sign up for Obama celebration
Source: BBC

Beyonce, U2 and Bruce Springsteen are among the musicians who have signed up to perform at an inaugural celebration for US President-elect Barack Obama.

Stevie Wonder, Usher, Mary J Blige and Sheryl Crow are also scheduled to perform at the event on 18 January at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Historical passages will also be read by singer Queen Latifah and actors Jamie Foxx and Denzel Washington. Mr Obama, who will be sworn in on 20 January, is expected to attend.

The executive producer of the show, George Stevens Jr, said he was taken by surprise by the eagerness of stars to perform once he was given the go-ahead by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

3. Stevie Wonder
Remember his song 'Happy Birthday'? Made to celebrate the idea of a holiday for MLK Jr's Birthday. John McCain opposed that holiday with a vengence. So the poetry is sweet and says to me, it might be long and slow, but love wins at some point.
