Jennifer Lopez gave a moving performance of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” for Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.

The singer and actor celebrated Biden being sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, along with fellow artist Lady Gaga, who sang the US national anthem.

During her performance, Lopez delivered a phrase in Spanish, leading those who did not speak the language to plea for a translation on social media.

Lopez was actually uttering part of the Pledge of Allegiance: “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Fans rejoiced in this celebration both of Lopez’s own heritage and of the Latino community in the US, with one saying it had “brought tears to my eyes”.

Biden’s inauguration has been considerably different to those of past presidents due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, a number of events were scheduled to help celebrate the historic moment, including a TV special hosted by Tom Hanks.
