In December 2008, Beyonce starred in the film “Cadillac Records” which was based on singer Etta James. The movie gained international praise and Beyonce was nominated for several awards. She also had the privilege of performing Etta James’ song “At Last” in January 2009, for Barack Obama’s first dance with Michelle during his inauguration. In March, Beyonce went on her second tour, “I Am… Tour,” which made an outstanding $119.5 million after performing at 108 venues. She received a further ten nominations for her songs in her album “I Am… Sasha Fierce” at the Grammys.
