Marking the historical day, celebs have taken to social media to celebrate the start of Biden’s four year term as president.

Singer John Legend shared a photo of the 400 lights lit at the Lincoln Memorial, in honour of the 400,000 lives lost in America during the pandemic.

He wrote: “Thank you, President Biden and Vice-President Harris, for honoring the over 400,000 lives we’ve lost in the past year from this awful virus.

“This number includes some of my family and probably some of yours. Among the many changes I look forward to, I’m very much looking forward to having a decent human being leading this nation, one who knows of grief, empathy, resilience and love for others. May God bless America.”
