Obama's inauguration 2013 - Katy Perry is the epitome of an American woman as she performs at the Kids Inaugural concert in Washington DC wearing red, white and blue.

The 'Wide Awake' singer made sure the world saw her full support for President Barack Obama in the bright outfit.

Beyonce Knowles sang the American national anthem at the politician's official inauguration, which took place at the West Front of the US Capitol on Monday Jan. 21, 2013.

Kelly Clarkson performed 'My Country Tis of Thee' and James Taylor sang 'America the Beautiful.'

Obama said: "Vice-President Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony. Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country.”

Katy Perry has also helped Obama celebrate his latest presidency by performing at a children's concert hosted by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, on Saturday.

The 'Firework' hitmaker donned a tight US-theme outfit for the occasion, where Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Usher, Smokey Robinson, and the cast of 'Glee' also performed.

Speaking at the event, the First Lady said: "Now, inauguration is a pretty big deal. But I have to tell you that my very favorite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you."
