John Legend performed at President Joe Biden’s Celebrating America inauguration event tonight (January 20). Legend played a grand piano situated near the Lincoln Memorial, where he sang a rendition of “Feeling Good”—a song made famous by Nina Simone in the mid-1960s. Watch it happen below.

Legend’s most recent studio album Bigger Love was released last summer. He previously made an appearance as part of the DNC’s virtual convention last year.

A number of artists have performed to celebrate the inauguration. Earlier today, Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem before the official swearing-in ceremony, Jennifer Lopez sang “This Land Is Your Land,” and Garth Brooks sang “Amazing Grace.” Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, and others have performed this evening.
