Aretha Franklin To Perform At Inauguration

So we're really gonna do this huh Barack??? I'm sad to admit that this is the first bad decision he's made. Aretha Franklin will sing, Pastor Rick Warren will pray and Yo-Yo Ma will play the cello during President-elect Barack Obama’s Inauguration.

I, for one, don't want to see or hear Aretha perform...but ... who am I? Congressional leaders on Wednesday announced the program, which also will feature poet Elizabeth Alexander; the Rev. Joseph Lowery, a veteran civil rights leader; and the U.S. Marine and Navy bands. The Jan. 20 event on the steps of the Capitol is expected to draw as many as four million visitors to see Obama take the noontime oath from Chief Justice John Roberts, while Vice President-elect Joe Biden will take his oath from Justice John Paul Stevens.
