While President-elect Donald Trump’s team is preparing for his inauguration on Jan. 20, liberals are also busy with their efforts to sabotage the event. During the weeks leading up to the inauguration, liberals have been threatening artists to force them out of the historic event.
The latest artist to cancel his performance at Trump’s inauguration is blind opera singer Andrea Bocelli. According to sources close to the international artist, he has been receiving death threats ever since he express his interest to sing in front of Trump and his supporters on Friday.
Although he would still like to perform at the event, his security team has strongly advised him to pull out of the performance due to the high risk involved.
“Andrea is very sad to be missing the chance to sing at such a huge global event but he has been advised it is simply not worth the risk,” a source said according to Zero Hedge.
Aside from Bocelli, Broadway icon Jennifer Holliday was also pressured by liberals to skip the inauguration. Earlier this week, Holliday cancelled her performance at the inauguration due to the threats she has been receiving.
Although Holliday and Bocelli have already cancelled their performances there are still several artists who are willing to participate at the inauguration. This includes the black marching band from Talladega College, which is still determined to perform at the event despite the backlash of criticisms and threats from liberals.
Earlier this month, university president Billy Hawkins announced that the band will move forward with its commitment to be at the inauguration.
“We respect and appreciate how our students and alumni feel about our participation in this parade,” he said in a statement according to Fox News.
“As 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,” he added.
Controversial rapper Kanye West is also interested in attending and performing at Trump’s inauguration. West, who has been successfully recovering from the psychological breakdown he suffered in late November, recently met with Trump to discuss various matters including racial issues and the inauguration.
According to Hollywood Life’s sources, West also talked to Trump about possibly performing at the event on Friday.
