First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden Celebrate the Inauguration with Military Families
The First and Second Ladies of the United States got an early start on the 2013 Inauguration celebrations at a concert honoring our military families. The Kids Inaugural Concert: Our Children, Our Future was hosted by Nick Cannon and featured artists including Katy Perry, Usher, the cast of "Glee," Far East Movement and Mindless Behavior. JR Martinez, the Army hero who won "Dancing with the Stars," also joined Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden for the event, which was held at the Washington Convention Center. Dr. Biden said the concert was a chance to show military kids how much the country appreciates the sacrifices they make while their parents are serving. The First Lady told the crowd that while she loves "every single minute" of the inaugural celebrations , the Kids Concert was the true highlight: I have to tell you that my very favorite part of this entire weekend is being right here with all of you. Absolutely. Because for me, this is what inauguration is all about. It’s about celebrating who we are as Americans and all the things that make this country so great. And when I think about who we are, when I think about what makes America great, I think about all of you --our men and women in uniform, our military spouses, and our amazing military kids. read more
