HBO is airing encore presentations of the Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Center, “WE ARE ONE”, today at 1 p.m. EST/PST and 9:30 p.m. EST/PST. If you have cable but don’t subscribe to HBO, you can view the concert for free. You can also view the concert at above times at HBO.com.
For those of us that did not make it to D.C., the concert definitely puts you there in the middle of everything and will have you singing and celebrating with the crowd. Some of the best moments include the Jamie Foxx impression of Obama, Stevie Wonder, along with Usher and Shakira, performing “Higher Ground”, Bruce Springsteen w/ Pete Seeger singing “This Land is Your Land”, Jon Bon Jovi and Bettye LaVette performing “A Change is Gonna Come, and Beyonce’s rendition of “America the Beautiful”.
Other guests included U2, Mary J. Blige, Tom Hanks, John Legend, and Denzel Washington.
Hopefully, HBO will allow the concert to be uploaded to Youtube. Until, then here are a couple clips:
