To celebrate Obama's 2008 victory, Beyoncé serenaded the President and first lady with a powerful rendition of Etta James's classic, "At Last," while the couple took their first dance at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball on Jan. 20, 2009. "The Obamas inspire me to be better, to be smarter, to do more," the singer said.
