The ceremony will begin at 10 am Eastern time with the swearing-in ceremony scheduled for later in the morning on the West Front of the Capitol in Washington. The ceremony will feature a musical performance from Jennifer Lopez, and Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem. Garth Brooks is also expected to perform.
After the inauguration, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with their spouses, Jill Biden and Douglas Emhoff, will then conduct a review of the military and visit Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize has expressed concern over a new challenge facing hospitals – a shortage of oxygen. Mkhize conducted site visits at various South African hospitals on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
The country’s health system is already under immense pressure, mainly from attending to COVID-19 hospitalizations, which have been on the rise due to the second wave of infections.
4. Ghana to decide on COVID-19 vaccines soon
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has disclosed that the Committee set up to recommend the appropriate decision on the deployment of a safe COVID-19 vaccine in Ghana has concluded its work enabling the government to begin discussions with vaccine manufacturing companies.
The President made this known Tuesday in an address at the 72nd Annual New Year School and Conference in Accra. He said the goal of the discussion was to order the most suitable vaccine for Ghana.
5. Lionel Messi: Barcelona to appeal against ban after Spanish Super Cup red card
Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has been banned for two games after being sent off for the first time for his club during their Spanish Super Cup defeat. Barcelona says they will appeal against the suspension, which was handed out by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). The 33-year-old forward, in his 753rd appearance for Barca, appeared to swing at Athletic Bilbao’s Asier Villalibre in the final seconds of extra time.
The incident was spotted by the VAR and Messi was shown a red card. Messi would have faced a sanction ranging from four to 12 matches had the RFEF’S disciplinary committee described the incident as an “aggression.” Instead, it was reported as “violence during play,” which is punished with a two to three-game ban.
