A lot of A-list celebrities have rejected the offer to perform at Trump’s inaugural ceremony, but with or without them, Trump will have his inauguration and suffice it to say, it would be better off without all those hard-headed stars.
The president-elect has recently announced his final list of performers. the Independent Journal Review stated that among the celebrities who rejected the honor were Elton John, frontman of KISS Gene Simmons, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, etc.
Trump wouldn’t be Trump if he didn’t deliver a message via Twitter to all those obstinate liberal celebrities, here’s what he posted.
Trump’s ceremony will not be a mixed concert like some previous inaugurations and that is perfectly fine. Boris Epshteyn, the Director of Communications for the Inaugural Committee commented on the event:
“This is not Woodstock. It’s not summer jam. It’s not a concert.”
The Trump administration is still going to have some music; it just might be from artists you’ve never heard before.
Here is the line-up:
Talladega Marching Tornadoes
This is the marching band for HBCU, Talladega College in Alabama.
According to Talladega College President Billy C. Hawkins, the “lessons students can learn from this experience cannot be taught in a classroom.”
“We respect and appreciate how our students and alumni feel about our participation in this parades. Many of those who chose to participate in the parade have said, we feel the inauguration of a new president is not a political event but a civil ceremony celebrating the transfer of power.”
Here’s Trump’s list of performers:
The Rockettes are a precision dance firm active probably since 1925. They are most famous for their high kicks and their performances at the Christmas season in NYC, where they do five shows a day, every single day of the week.
Some Rockettes dancers refused to participate during the ceremony, so just those who accepted will perform.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir have performed at at least seven different inaugurations, so it would not be a surprise if you’ve seen them before.
So far, Jackie Evancho is the only solo artist at the inauguration so far and maybe the most famous of the performers. Even though she is only 16, Evancho became famous during her performance on “America’s Got Talent” ending in second place.
Jackie will not sing for the first time before a president, she has also performed for Obama. Ever since it was announced that Jackie will perform at the inauguration, the sales of her Christmas album have rapidly increased.
This is so far the known list of performers for Trump’s historic moment. Nevertheless, the famous country band Big & Rich is scheduled to do an act on the pre-inaugural gala on January 19th.
