- Lady Gaga took to social media to post a call for peace ahead of the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden
- The popstar and Oscar-winner shared a photo of herself at the Capitol, which was the site that very recently saw scenes of insurrection and violence
- Lady Gaga will be performing at the event and wrote that she was praying that the inauguration would usher in an era of hope and love for all Americans
Lady Gaga is at the US Capitol to join the host of Hollywood and music industry A-listers who are set to perform at the event.
The musician and Oscar-winner took to social media ahead of the big day to plead for peace at the site, which recently dominated headlines around the world after it housed scenes of violence and insurrection.
Gaga pleaded for peace in her caption as well as wrote that she was praying for the inauguration to mark the beginning of an era of hope and love for the American people.
Her caption read:
"I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love from the Capitol."
Lady Gaga has been an avid supporter of the Biden-Harris administration and participated in campaign events for them during the election, so she was an obvious choice to be part of the event.
The picture Gaga paired with her call for peace was one that encapsulated the grandeur of the Capitol building and showed her in a praying stance. She wore a white outfit to drive the message of peace as well as to echo the symbolic suffragette-white that Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris wore for her own victory speech.
