There were so many historic aspects to the inauguration of President Joe Biden. It occurred during a pandemic, it was the first time since 1869 that a sitting president has chosen not to attend, and it celebrated the first woman, first African American, and first Asian American to be elected to the position of vice president. It also featured Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Garth Brooks—a concert trio nobody saw coming!
Despite all of that, the highlight for many was Amanda Gorman. For a young poet to upstage history and Gaga….that’s pretty remarkable!
