Lady Gaga was chosen to sing the national anthem at Joe Biden's inauguration in late January. The artist has revealed what a great honor it was to perform.

THE GREATEST HONOR

The "Poker Face" singer took hold of the golden microphone to sing the national anthem only a few moments before the 46th president of the United States of America took his oath of office.

It was a big moment for Lady Gaga, who looked gorgeous in a gown with a blue top and a full red skirt. With a golden bird pinned to her chest, the pop singer took to the stage to give a moving performance. She commented afterward saying:

SYMBOLIC DOVE

The golden dove pinned to the pop singer's chest held significant meaning. Designed by Daniel Roseberry, the golden bird held an olive branch in its mouth.

The singer has been actively using her platform to share a message of hope and unity.

After the ceremony, Lady Gaga took to Twitter to explain to her followers that the dove was a symbol of peace, and it was a message she hoped to convey during the transitioning period.

SMOOCHES AT THE CEREMONY

Her stellar performance of the national anthem was not the only thing drawing attention to Lady Gaga during the ceremony. Her number one supporter and boyfriend of one-year tech entrepreneur Michael Polansky was cheering her on from the crowd.

The two shared a kiss through the masks after the "A Star was Born" star came down into the crowd as the Harvard graduate showed his girlfriend support.

MESSAGE OF HOPE

The singer has been actively using her platform to share a message of hope and unity. A day before her performance, she took to Instagram to share a stunning photo of her in all white standing in the Capitol.

On top of showing off her custom cape dress from Givenchy by Matthew Williams, Lady Gaga also shared a moving message with her followers. Her caption read:

"I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear."

Lady Gaga has been more focused on the wellbeing of her fellow countrymen who have been struggling during unprecedented times due to the pandemic than she has been in her career.

Utilizing her talents and platforms to inspire hope and bring about positive change, Lady Gaga has had all eyes on her for all of the best reasons. Her national anthem performance has gone down as one to remember.
