The festivities of the presidential inauguration will include some amazing musical talent on Monday. Jennifer Hudson, Marc Anthony, Alicia Keys and Brad Paisley will be seen entertaining the President and the distinguished guests at the Commander in Chief's Ball. The American public is also invited to watch as the military has set up a live stream for people to watch the event online with a live stream.
While it is just a dream for the average American to be part of the festivities of an official ball, the Commander in Chief's Ball is extra special as it honors the men and women in the military including wounded veterans. President Obama and Vice President Biden will take the moment to reflect on the military service members and the sacrifices of the families. Then the stage will be dedicated to talented artists who get the distinguished honor to perform for the event.
The Commander in Chief's Ball live stream will allow folks who were unable to attend the ball a chance to appreciate the festivities. Expected to reach millions of people around the world, the event opens the doors at 7pm and could last late into the night.
The Presidential Inauguration kicks off on Sunday with several days of events. While most individuals are interested in watching the public swearing in ceremony oath of office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, there are also two big balls, an inauguration parade down Pennsylvania Avenue and an Inaugural National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral.
