Obama feted at the Lincoln Memorial
The Presidential inaugural festivities kicked off yesterday with the 'We are One' celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.
With the imposing statue of Abraham Lincoln serving as a backdrop, musicians paid tribute to the man who will be the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Bono, Cheryl Crow and others performed at the stirring ceremony to a massive crowd of appreciative, if chilled supporters.
Of course the cute First Kids, Sasha and Malia, were there to support their Daddy.

Tomorrow's the big day, peoples! Where will you be at 12 noon?
