As soon as Trump’s Inauguration acts are revealed, major controversy starts brewing

The team from President-elect donald Trump announced some big acts for a concert to take place the day before his inauguration.

“President-elect Trump has made it clear that this inaugural is of, by, and for the American people. The 58th Inaugural will celebrate American history and heritage, while setting the course to a brighter and bolder future for all Americans,” Presidential Inaugural Committee Tom Barrack wrote in a press release, CNN reported. “Above all, it will serve as tribute to one of our greatest attributes, the peaceful transition of partisan power.”

The concert was announced to include country star Toby Keith, Jennifer Holliday, Lee Greenwood, 3 Doors Down group and more.

The band “3 Doors Down” post a photo of themselves on Instagram with the following press release.

“The “‘Make America Great Again!’ Welcome Celebration” will take place Thursday, January 19th and will be broadcast live to the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial,” the band wrote. “It will feature historic remarks from President-elect Trump and special appearances from Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, DJ Ravidrums, The Piano Guys, Tim Rushlow (“Little Texas”), Larry Stewart (“Restless Heart”), Marty Roe (“Diamond Rio”), Lee Greenwood, and 3 Doors Down.

 

But as soon as the announcement made its way to the public, there were signs one of the acts may not be on board.

“Jennifer has been asked to perform but she hasn’t officially agreed to do so yet,” Bill Carpenter, Holliday’s publicist told The Wrap. “I’ll let you know later this afternoon for sure if she’ll be performing.”

It’s not a stretch to speculate that the Braoadway star’s hesitation might be because of the abuse she took on social media immediately after the original announcement that said she was included.

While it’s only speculation that the immediate backlash is behind the singer’s apparent hesitation, she could probably fare well from some friendly support, along with the other acts that are no doubt, taking one for the team.

And don’t miss the ‘tailor-made’ for Trump song that will be performed on the big day.
