Speaking to Jimmy Fallon about the performing on Celebrating America, which was hosted by Tom Hanks, he said, “I had written a song with Ant Clemons, an up-and-coming artist.
“We had written a song, ‘Better Days’, and we were doing these writing sessions and we started writing this song. Ironically, I recorded my final vocal for the song on election day just because I was so nervous about what was going to happen. I had to distract myself.
“I don’t know if somebody who was on my side communicated to them or… I’m just gonna with I’m pretty sure Joe and Kamala [Harris, Vice-President] just wanted us to do it. We just heard there as an opportunity to perform at the inauguration and we were super stoked to do it.”
