Millions of people around the world, including here in the Philippines, have a big interest to the ceremonies and oath taking of President Obama to his office in the White House. And as expected, users, especially those who are in the office and/or people who have no TV access are buckling their seatbelt as they are watching online and tuning on the happenings during the inauguration day. Most especially, for the filipinos who are very proud that one of the young divas were invited to sing for Obama and thats no other than Charice Pempengco.
