Who Will Be Singing For The Presidential Inauguration Of Donald Trump?

You know you are not popular when people refuse to celebrate your success with you. Donald Trump’s inauguration into presidency is slated to happen on January 20, 2017 and the day is set to include music and dance performances by leading artists. However, it seems celebrities are refusing to perform at the ceremony left and right with Moby being the latest to say no to the president elect’s invitation. Reportedly, many high profile artists have been asked to sing at the ceremony, but refused the offer. David Foster, Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, Elton John and Andrea Bocelli are among some of the big names who have refused to participate in Trump’s inauguration.

Others, like Rebecca Ferguson, have agreed to perform under certain conditions. The singer of X Factor fame says she is willing to perform at the inauguration ceremony if he allowed her to sing ‘Strange Fruit’. Ferguson states that the song has enormous historical importance and she would be happy to attend the event if allowed to sing the song. Current sources state that Ferguson has since declined to perform though she sends America her love.

People who are definitely performing are the Rockettes dance group, who regularly perform at The City Hall and 16-year-old Jackie Evancho who was the runner up in 2010’s America’s Got Talent. Evancho has continued her musical performances and is scheduled to sing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ at the celebration of Trump’s presidential win, though she has so far been the only solo singer to do so. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has also agreed to perform at the event, though the 350-strong group has lost one member who quit claiming she could not throw roses at Hitler. Other celebrities that have been listed for performance tentatively but none are confirmed and with less than 8 days till the event, we hope Mr Trump can get his ducks in a row.

Michelle Obama – The First Lady And Fashion Icon Of America

As the First Lady, all eyes were on her these past 8 years. But Michelle Obama proved to be an inspiration to fashionistas everywhere with her chic yet occasionally super affordable clothing. While she was hardly just eye-candy, Michelle’s style has given rise to contemporary power dressing. Despite who this year’s election winner will be, it seems clear that in a couple of months, America will be bidding farewell to Michelle Obama’s FLOTUS fashion. From her impressionable dress during Barrack Obama’s inauguration ceremony to the navy Versace gown she wore during his final farewell speech as president, the world has been enamored with her inspiring yet down-to-earth fashion.

In a move unlike any other First Lady before her, she invested in unspoken statements through her clothes. Michelle supported new and emerging designers and paid respects to her designers through her dress choices. Her clever use of sartorial opportunities showed itself in Michelle’s colorful and fun sense of style. She could be dressed in gorgeous fashion from Jason Wu or in more approachable daily wear from J.Crew, the world could always expect a bright and creative ensemble from her. With a few public appearances still on the agenda, there are still a couple of final opportunities left to take in the First Lady’s fashion for just a little bit longer.

With her affinity for designers everyone loves and her fearless approach to sparkle, she has captured more than a few hearts. Not only does she look effortlessly put together during State events, but manages to pull off casual clothes with an air of sophisticated cool. Michelle is hardly seen as being unafraid to take fashion risks and the world will miss that about the First Lady. Of course, there is always the possibility of Michelle continuing to maintain a high profile role as the former First Lady which means that the world’s obsession with her dresses can legitimately continue.
