    Presidential inauguration ceremonies often include musical performances. American contralto Marian Anderson was the first African-American to sing a leading role with the Metropolitan Opera in 1955. Two years later, she sang at the inauguration of President Eisenhower's second term. She performed again four years later for President Kennedy's inauguration.
