Lady Gaga arrived in Washington D.C. ahead of Joe Biden’s historic inauguration where the “Rain on Me” singer will be singing the National Anthem. But the iconic star isn’t only using her voice for singing but also in empowering others.
On Tuesday, January 19, she shared a message of hope and positivity on Instagram. She wrote, “I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance, not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol.”
The star obviously practiced what she preached because she was snapped greeting the National Guard soldiers while leaving the capitol. She looked elegant during her visit with her all-white ensemble consisting of a tailored suit with a cape-like coat. The outfit reminded many of what former First Ladies wore.
Also, her ensemble was similar to what Kamala Harris wore when she won as vice president. Her power suit got the seal of approval of the women’s suffrage movement and the color symbolizes hope and positivity, too.
That time, she expressed her excitement over their victory. She took to Instagram to post, “@joebiden @KamalaHarris and the American people, you just gave the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery humanity has ever seen. Nothing but love for our new Commander in Chief and the 1ST female VP elected to the White House.”
She added in another post, “I hope you’re all celebrating. I hope all the women in this country know that there is a real reckoning and a real change. I hope the people who have been oppressed by power… I hope that you know your voices are heard.”
She continued, “I’m just honestly kind of speechless. This is a very special day. It’s a day where a lot of people… have felt like we were living in a state of terror and aggression all the time and it’s over. You can feel warm now.”
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga’s call for peace came approximately two weeks after the riots took place the U.S. Capitol Hill where supporters of President Donald Trump caused “violence and destruction” as Vice President Mike Pence stated.
