Alicia Keys brought the house down at President Obama‘s Inaugural Ball by changing the lyrics to one of her most popular songs, “Girl On Fire,” to salute the president.
A longtime supporter of President Obama, Keys began by telling the audience, “today is an incredible day. And you can feel the energy everywhere that you go. Every day is a new day and a new chance to be our best. To serve our highest purpose.”
She introduced the new lyrics, “He’s president and he’s on fire…he’s living in a world and it’s on fire” and paused for a few seconds to cheers from the crowd before belting “Obama’s on fire!”
