Many American celebrities pay tribute to new President Joe Biden in an online show. The rush was Wednesday evening (local time) for rock star Bruce Springsteen. John Bon Jovi, John Legend, VO Fighters, Demi Lovato and Justin Timberlake will also participate in the ceremony in honor of Biden’s inauguration.
Springsteen performed the song The Land of Hope and Dreams from the bottom of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. Moments later, actor Tom Hanks takes the floor. “In the last few weeks, the last few years, we have witnessed a deep division and worrying bitterness in our country, but tonight we are rethinking the United States,” Hanks said.
Referring to the preamble to the United States Constitution, Hanks said: “Exercise our democracy, the foundations of our republic, the integrity of our constitution, the hopes and dreams that we share for a more perfect union.” For some, inauguration is a tradition, an act that represents a commitment to a four-year term in office. But in reality, Inauguration Day is more than the swearing-in of subsequent patriotic leaders. This day is about watching the perpetuity of our American example. “
Biden also gave a short speech on a festive program entitled “Celebrating America.” The new president said he felt humbled. “As I said earlier today, today we learned that democracy is precious and that democracy has won because of you,” Aldius Biden. “That’s why Jill, Kamala, and Doug and I wanted to make sure that our inauguration was not about us, it was about you, about the American people.”
