Choir, Alexander to Take Part in Inauguration

As the ranking Republican on the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, Lamar Alexander will give a short speech from the inaugural platform before President Barack Obama is sworn in to a second term, the Jackson Sun reports. After his speech, Alexander will introduce Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor who will swear in Joe Biden as vice president. He invited the choir from Lee University in Cleveland to sing from the inaugural viewing area for an hour before the event.
