Before taking the stage to sing the National Anthem, Beyonce Knowles and her hubby Jay-Z arrived at the U.S. Capitol on Monday (January 21).

The Hip Hop couple looked regal as the 31-year-old songstress donned a lovely black gown with a black fur coat.

Beyonce is slated to ring in President Barack Obama’s second inauguration on the footsteps of the national landmark, following in the footsteps of Aretha Franklin who performed at the first inauguration back in 2009.

In addition, Kelly Clarkson is slated to perform “My Country Tis of Thee,” while James Taylor will sing “America the Beautiful.”
