Singing sensation Jennifer Lopez and her husband Marc Anthony attended the Latino Inaugural Gala in Washington on Sunday evening to celebrate Barack Obama’s appointment to the most important job. When asked about the new President, she said that Obama is certainly the biggest A-Lister of them all and is a rock star.

“He is the biggest rock star here, even though it is chock-full of celebrities. The night he won the election, you could feel it in the air. I was watching him with tears in my eyes, thinking that something is different and something is happening,” quoted Lopez as saying. “Washington never had a bigger rock star at the helm. He is just too good,” she added.

The ball was a big hit amongst the Latino celebrities and included George Lopez, David Archuleta and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien in attendance. Pop singer Shakira was also present, dressed in a beautiful green Oscar de la Renta gown.

Archuleta started the proceedings with ‘The Star-Spangled Banner‘ and was later followed by some other gigs. The guests also included some congressmen.

J Lo was wearing an electric blue evening gown and her hubby wore a pinstriped suit.

“Yes we can,” she said to the cheering crowd. “We all stood together and said ‘Yes we will.'”
