Jennifer Lopez brought a folk spirit to Joe Biden’s inauguration as President of the United States.
On Wednesday, during the historic ceremony, the 51-year-old singer took the stage to perform a rendition of the iconic American folk song “This Land is Your Land”.

After beginning with Woody Guthrie’s 1945 classic, Lopez, who wore a white Chanel pantsuit for the occasion, transitioned into a medley that included a rendition of “America the Beautiful”, followed by a brief bit of her own hit song, “Let’s Get Loud”.
In the middle of the medley, Lopez also gave a shoutout to the Latino community, reciting a couple of lines from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish.
Afterwards, Lopez engaged in a pretty photo shoot at Capitol Hill with her clique, Alex Rodriguez included.
On Twitter, fans praised Lopez’s performance and others noted the significance of “This Land Is Your Land” as an anthem inclusive of all Americans.
VERY VERY Saucy chord changes played by the orchestra during J Lo’s wonderful performance!!!!! I like. 🇺🇸

As a nation we must come together, and let us, as J.Lo asks, get loud

Gaga dressed like a Hunger Games sponsor. J Lo worked “let’s get loud” into this land is your land. Everything about this is so extra

This Land Is Your Land should be the national anthem. My only real take today
