Twenty-four of Kenya's best choir boys will sing traditional Kenyan songs during the inauguration in Washington on Tuesday.
The choir is expected to sing at the official black tie inauguration ball.
Kenyans feel particularly honored with the election of Barack Obama because he is the first African American president with Kenyan roots.
The choir will sing praise songs, one of which is called "Obama Gongavuza," a traditional song from western Kenya.
Obama was born in Hawaii to a white mother from the state of Kansas and a black father from Kenya.
He wasn't close to his African family, although he last visited them on a 2006 trip to Kenya.
