Beyonce has some big weeks ahead.
Before her halftime performance Feb. 3 at Super Bowl XLVII, she'll be singing the national anthem at President Obama's inauguration ceremony Jan. 21 on the Capitol steps in Washington, D.C.
Also performing at the inauguration, per an announcement this morning: Kelly Clarkson will sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" and James Taylor will sing "America the Beautiful".
Beyonce also performed during Obama's first inauguration, first at the swearing-in and then singing Etta James' "At Last" for the first dance at the Inaugural Ball.
Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, hosted a $40,000-a-plate fundraiser for Obama's re-election campaign Sept. 19 at Jay-Z's New York City nightclub, where the president remarked, "Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls."
This love fest has been going on for a while. First lady Michelle Obama also has cited Beyonce as a role model, and the two worked together on campaigns and a video for the first lady's health and fitness projects.
President Obama's campaign tweeted about Beyonce and Jay-Z, like, a lot.
Small wonder she gets the occasional suggestion to consider her own campaign.
Beyonce also is up for a Grammy at that ceremony Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
