NPR has a sweet story about 100-year-old Lillian Allen of Pittsburgh who's gearing up to travel to Washington for the inauguration.  

In other feel-good news, 10-year-old Avery Jordan scored a pair of inauguration tickets from Oklahoma congressman Tom Cole after he wrote the congressman a letter citing how much Obama has inspired him. "I kept praying and praying and praying," he said.

Latina magazine reports that Columbian singer/dancer Shakira will perform at the inauguration. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton notes that the Obama camp won't confirm or deny the report.
