Nearly 1 million people flooded the National Mall today to watch Barack Obama as he was sworn in as the president of the United States.

President Obama and Joe Biden were both sworn in to office today.

James Taylor sang America The Beautiful.

And the first couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce, walked down aisle before the former Destiny’s Child singer took the microphone to sing the National Anthem.

Kelly Clarkson also sang during #inaug2013. She was also photobombed by Bill Clinton.

It was near freezing today in D.C. but the crowd smiled through the ceremony.

President Obama’s inauguration speech touched on equality for gay couples, climate change, and how this generation has the chance to make America a better place. After his speech, the White House posted a series of photos with quotes from Obama’s speech.
