A star-studded cast of musicians and actors have kicked off a powerful pre-inaugural concert for President-elect Barack Obama at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.

Famous American rocker and Obama loyal, Bruce Springsteen, began proceedings with a high energy set, backed by a full gospel choir to a crowd numbering in the tens of thousands, news agency Associated Press reported.

Obama and his wife Michelle, who were accompanied by their daughters Malia and Sasha, sat behind a thick bullet-proof shield next to the stage for the duration of the show.
The concert featured performances from rock giants U2, R&B starlet Beyonce and the Grammy-winning James Taylor.

Thee Oscar-winning actors also addressed the crowd.
Denzel Washington was the first to speak, telling attendees "we are all in this together".
Another speaker was Tom Hanks who read a poignant tribute to one of America's greatest Presidents, and one of Obama’s heroes, Abraham Lincoln.

Later actor Jamie Foxx got the crowds to their feet, as he urged them to make some noise: "Chi-town, stand up!"

Foxx then staged an impromptu impersonation of Obama, the man elected the next president of the United States.

As the concert came to a close, singer Garth Brooks sang American Pie, and America’s new first family could be seen mouthing the words behind their protective layer of bullet proof glass.

Here are some videos from the event.

Seeing the Lincoln Memorial reminded me of when I went to Washington in the 8th grade. It is truing amazing seeing it in person. I think that and being inside the White House were 2 of my favorite parts about that trip.

I agree, they do seem to be very down to earth people who really connect with most middle class americans conveying that they are able to understand our concerns and be willing to help. I like how above all Michelle said her job is to maintain a normal life for her daughters over any duties she might have as first lady.
