The Inauguration

12.18.08 | FL News Team

One hundred seventy-five New Yorkers and their guests are heading to President-elect Barack Obama's historic inauguration. The lucky few were selected randomly in a ticket lottery by Senator Chuck Schumer's office.

Meanwhile, the order of service for the inauguration has been released. Aretha Franklin, violinist Itzhak Perlman and cellist Yo-Yo Ma are among the performers for the January 20th event. Pastor Rick Warren has been tapped to deliver the invocation.

*FLN News will also be live at the inauguration! Elizabeth Weaver will be reporting from the National Mall before, during and after the event.
