Jennifer Lopez brought some glamour to Inauguration Day as she delivered a moving performance at Capitol.

The singer and actress wowed in a voluminous white ensemble as she took to the stage to perform a rendition of Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land.

The singer couldn’t resist including a line from her hit, Let’s Get Loud, as she took part in the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The day before the performance, Jennifer took time to speak with members of the national guard at Capitol.

Sharing a video of the moment, she wrote: ‘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.’
