The iconic Jennifer Lopez took to the Capitol stage for the inauguration of Joe Biden and sang “This Land Is Your Land” and “America The Beautiful.” And the Puerto Rican singer made the performance unique by including a spoken line of Spanish in the midst of her performance (via PBS). “Una nación, bajo Dios, indivisible, con libertad y justicia para todos,” which translates to a line from the Pledge of Allegiance: “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Dressed in an all-white outfit for the inauguration, as perhaps a nod to women’s suffrage and women’s rights activism, Lopez also snuck in a little nod to her own music, singing “Let’s get loud,” before finishing her medley.
Her fiancé Alex Rodriguez had hinted that the singer might be doing something a little different in her performance when he was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, saying “she has something really cool. You’re going to be surprised. You’re going to love it” (via YouTube).
Jennifer Lopez was a vocal supporter of Biden's during the election
Rodriguez also revealed on The Tonight Show that, even after performing at the Super Bowl and Times Square New Year’s Eve, that the inauguration was nerve-wracking for her, “She’s most nervous about Washington D.C. because of the responsibility. And she wants more than anything, like all of us, to bring people together, to inspire.”
Lopez has been a vocal supporter of Biden, and she and A-Rod sat down for a virtual chat on YouTube with then candidate Biden and Dr. Jill Biden in October to talk about the election and Covid and how it’s more negatively impacted the Latinx community than others. After the election was called for Biden, she posted an Instagram video of her dancing in celebration.
The day before the inauguration in Washington, Lopez took some pics with military service members and tweeted, “What an honor to spend a few moments with these brave men and women. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. I honor you today and everyday. Tomorrow I sing for you and all Americans. #inauguration2021”.
