James Taylor has been added to the bill of performers set to wow the audience at President Barack Obama's second inauguration ceremony. The folk legend will perform "America the Beautiful" at the event.

Others set to perform are Beyoncé ("Star-Spangled Banner") and Kelly Clarkson ("My Country, 'Tis of Thee"). All three singers were selected by the President himself. Richard Blanco, the son of Cuban exiles, will be the inaugural poet.

Obama will be sworn in for his second term on January 20, on the steps of the Capitol building.

Beyoncé and Taylor both appeared at Obama's first inauguration in 2009. Lady Bey performed a cover of Etta James's "At Last" for Obama's first dance with First Lady Michelle Obama during the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.
