The 'Crazy In Love' singer made her first live performance of the year in Washington yesterday.

Beyonce gave a live performance of the US National Anthem as Barack Obama officially began his second term as President yesterday.

The 'Love On Top' singer performed the Star Spangled Banner for thousands in attendance upon Capitol Hill in Washington at the Inauguration ceremony.

The Destiny's Child singer finished the performance in style as she drew her hand to the sky and was greeted with rapturous applause.

The 'Countdown' star has been a keen supporter of the American leader since he came into power and alongside husband Jay-Z managed to help raise $4 million for his reelection campaign last November.

The couple wowed upon their arrival at the event, looking glamorous and stood hand in hand for the moment Obama was sworn in.

She has also been rumoured to have collaborated with Lady Gaga, Azealia Banks and Rihanna on a new song called 'Ratchet'.
