Kelly Clarkson – “My Country Tis of Thee” – Obama Inauguration (VIDEO) (UPDATED)

Watch Kelly Clarkson sing a POWERFUL version of “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee” at today’s inauguration of American president, Barack Obama, for a second term.

Obama looked to be in a total state of rapture while he listened to her sing. Fabulous and perfect. Kelly performed right after Obama delivered his 2nd inaugural speech.

After, Kelly tweeted, “Wow ….I was incredibly nervous and cold ha! I just wanna officially thank President Obama for opening for me haha! Just kidding :)”

Beyonce sang The National Anthem, but it was a bit of a letdown after Kelly killed it. James Taylor crooned a sweet version of America The Beautiful after Vice President Joe Biden was sworn in.
