Girl Gaga is to sing the nationwide anthem at the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on January 20.

The “Chromatica” vocalist has been a singing fan of the Democrats and campaigned for a Biden-Harris triumph.

The performer– whose real name is Stefani Germanotta– will be singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the event, as verified by the Biden-Harris inaugural committee via Variety

The swearing-in ceremony usually starts around 11: 30 a.m. ET on the West Front of the Capitol.

Others apparently lined up to appear at the event include Andrea Hall, a firefighter who will lead the procedures with the Promise of Obligation. Amanda Gorman, the very first National Youth Poet Laureate, will recite a poem.

Jennifer Lopez is also set to perform but other artists have yet to be named.

An invocation and a benediction will be provided by Fr. Leo O’Donovan and Rev. Dr. Silvester Beaman respectively– both are long-time buddies of the Biden household.

Gaga fans will remember her performing the nationwide anthem at Super Bowl 50 in 2016.

Following the attack on the U.S. Capitol by Donald Trump supporters last week, the vocalist advised Congress to impeach the president, stating he had “incited domestic fear.”

On Wednesday, Trump became the very first president in history to be impeached twice, with members of his own Republican party joining Democrats to vote against him.

Trump has actually preserved that he will not go to the inauguration of Biden, which is set to have more National Guard troops in presence than the swearing-in events of Trump and Barack Obama combined.

Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee said on Wednesday: “I think you can anticipate to see someplace, upwards beyond 20,000 members of the National Guard that will be here in the footprint of the District of Columbia.”

The inauguration has actually been designated a “national special security occasion” after five people, consisting of a Capitol law enforcement officer, died in the riots let loose by a pro-Trump mob last week.
