Meanwhile, multi-awarded actor Tom Hanks will also be hosting the event, Celebrating America, a televised program that will air live in all major networks starting at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT and will last for around 90 minutes. In addition, viewers can watch the event through the Presidential Inauguration Committee’s channels on social media and cable and streaming platforms.
Aside from the highly anticipated performances from music artists, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will also give their remarks. They’ll be sworn in to office in the morning of the said day in Washington D.C.
It’s no surprise that J.Lo is one of the performers in the said event. In addition to acting, her music has entertained Americans for years. Just recently, she released her new song’s music video on Triller. “In The Morning” is set to be released on YouTube on January 15.
The highly awaited inauguration is taking place a week after President Donald Trump was impeached for the second time after the Capitol riots. He said he won’t be at Biden’s swearing in. It will be done in person with limited guests due to the pandemic.
The Washington Post mentioned that the Presidential Inauguration Committee has given tickets to the momentous event to lawmakers, who are allowed to take one guest. There are also several select individuals who were granted these tickets. Meanwhile, former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton together with their wives will be gracing the occasion.
In addition to Celebrating America, Americans are assured that there’ll be a virtual inauguration day parade. Further, Biden and Harris will also lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier after they’re sworn in as part of tradition.
According to a statement by Tony Allen, Committee Chief Executive Officer, he hopes, “This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people—one of healing, of unifying, of coming together, of an America united.”
