It looks like the Obama inauguration committee has successfully wooed self-proclaimed Ron Paul fan singer Kelly Clarkson to sing for the president.

According to an announcement, Kelly Clarkson will perform “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” during the inauguration ceremony.

“I love Ron Paul,” Clarkson wrote on Twitter in December 2011. “I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

Clarkson later defended her comments insisting that she did not endorse Paul, but admitted to liking the Republican candidate because he believed in less government and was “refreshing.”

Clarkson endorsed Obama in October 2012, arguing that the president was “a great guy” adding that she didn’t want to vote for Mitt Romney.

Superstar Beyonce, a big Obama fan, will sing the national anthem during the ceremony and and James Taylor will sing “America the Beautiful.”
