Gaga appeared on the campaign trail with Biden during the 2020 election and worked with the then-Vice President on his "It's on Us" campaign to combat campus sexual assault in 2017.
The Biden-Harris inaugural committee announced that Gaga is on board to perform 'The Star Spangled Banner' for the swearing-in ceremony at the U.S. Capitol.
Jennifer Lopez will also perform at the highly-anticipated event, but additional artists booked have not yet been publicly revealed.
The new Democratic ticket is expected to draw a starry lineup of industry supporters to participate and perform for the inaugural festivities.
In addition to the swearing-in ceremony, a virtual parade and other events are scheduled for live streams on January 20th, with a primetime network special hosted by Tom Hanks taking place.
After the 2020 Presidential Election race was called for Biden, Gaga tweeted:
“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the American people, you just gave the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery humanity has ever seen...Nothing but love for our new Commander in Chief and the 1st female VP elected to the White House. Also, way to go PA.”
Lady Gaga previously won praise for her rendition of the national anthem at the opening of Super Bowl 50 back in 2016.
