Obama loved Springsteen. So, apparently, does Joe Biden. On November 7, 2020, Biden came jogging out into the Wilmington, Delaware night to the sound of Bruce Springsteen’s “We Take Care of Our Own.” The New York Times is reporting that Springsteen will perform on January 20 at a televised event called “Celebrating America.” A taste:
Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Foo Fighters will perform during the prime-time special that will cap the inauguration of President-elect Joseph R.
