Yo girl Beyoncé is on the move EARLY this year. She got all ratchet, exposing her post baby bod on the cover and today it was announced that she will be one of several selected entertainment divas to perform a number of patriotic songs at the second inauguration of President Obama on January 21st, 2013.

Beyonce Inauguration Obama

Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z have become really close-knit with the Obama family over the years. She’s offered her services to Michelle Obama‘s ‘Let’s Move’ initiative to fight childhood obesity, raised $4 million for Obama’s re-election campaign and even appraised Michelle via a handwritten note for being a great role model for her daughter Blue Ivy.

It comes as no surprise that she was invited to perform for the second time at their inauguration ceremony. The first performance took place in 2008 when she stunned the world with a cover of Etta James’ ‘At Last’. She will reportedly sing the national anthem, two weeks ahead of her Super Bowl halftime show next month.

Told y’all this chyc is on a roll….
