A diverse line up of talent, from Beyonce to Bon Jovi to Garth Brooks, is signed up for "We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration," a much anticipated part of the inauguration schedule on January 20th.

The incredible, star-studded concert will include big-names including Usher, Josh Groban, Heather Headley, Mary J. Blige,, Shakira, U2, John Legend, Sheryl Crow, Renée Fleming, Mstr. Sgt. Caleb Green, Herbie Hancock, Bettye Lavette, Jennifer Nettles, John Mellencamp, Pete Seeger, James Taylor and Stevie Wonder.

The concert has something for everyone: Beyonce appeals to younger females, Bruce Springsteen speaks to older generations, while U2 has an uncanny ability to target people of various generations. For teen Obama fans, the inauguration schedule also includes a special concert by Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.

Speeches will be delivered by Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah and Denzel Washington, among others, who will no doubt be warmly embraced by a celebrity audience expected to include Tiger Woods, Rosario Dawson, Steve Carell, Jack Black, Tom Hanks, Ashley Judd, Laura Linney, Kal Penn and Forest Whitaker.
