Jennifer Holliday Pulls Out of Trump Inauguration, Apologizes to LGBT Community – The Daily Beast

Jennifer Holliday Pulls Out of Trump Inauguration, Apologizes to LGBT Community – The Daily Beast – The Dreamgirls Tony- and Grammy-winner, who just wrapped a run in The Color Purple on Broadway, was announced Friday as part of the entertainment lineup for Donald Trump’s inauguration, a booking that has famously been passed on by a laughably long list of performers, either in protest of the professed values of the president-elect or in fear of how supporting him at that venue might alienate fans. Holliday will join country singer Toby Keith, rock band 3 Doors Down, and actor Jon Voight for a Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration concert at the Lincoln Memorial that will be broadcast live the day before Inauguration Day, January 19. As was previously announced, teenage America’s Got Talent alum Jackie Evancho will perform the National Anthem.
