President-elect Donald Trump‘s upcoming inauguration on Jan. 20 has been the source of plenty of controversy. Singer Jennifer Holliday, 56, was scheduled to perform, but dropped out on Jan. 14. The singer explained she had performed at past inaugurations and in an open letter to her fans originally obtained by The Wrap said, “I originally made my decision to perform at the inauguration which was what I had thought would be my simply keeping in my tradition of being a ‘bi-partisan songbird’ having sung for Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush.” Jennifer had received backlash for her decision to perform at the inauguration from the LGBT community.
Meanwhile, country singer Lee Greenwood, 74, announced he would be performing at the inauguration concert the day before the ceremony on Jan. 19 only this week. The “God Bless The U.S.A.” singer remains one of the few who has agreed to take part in the festivities in Washington D.C. Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Radio City Rockettes, and America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho are all to perform on Inauguration Day.
