Aretha Franklin Inauguration VIDEO

aretha franklin sings

Aretha Franklin sang My Country, 'Tis Of Thee during the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States.    Decked out in a huge hat, she belted out the song with her usual flair.

As much as we admire her talent, we can't help but think that the hat trumped her music.

Check out her video performance below and more celebrity photos below.  Beyonce serenades Obama's here.
