Since the entertainment industry is run by devoted liberals, Donald Trump has found it difficult to convince any singers to perform at his inauguration because they believe that doing so would put their careers at risk. That’s why it came as good news to his team this week when music legend Marie Osmond, of the famous Donny and Marie duo, said she would perform at the inauguration if she was asked to.
This sibling duo has performed at multiple inaugurations, including Ronald Reagan’s in 1981, and Marie said that they would be happy to do so again.
“I think when it comes to our country we need to unite,” Marie told Yahoo Finance. “I think we should all support our president whether we’re happy or sad. This is America.”
Marie explained that her eight children fall all over the political spectrum, and that she never wants them to feel divided based on their political views.
“We should come together and I think an Inauguration should be a time to unite, it really should,”
This came hours after singer Rebecca Ferguson pulled out of the January 20th inauguration citing disagreements with the Trump team over song choice. This left Jackie Evancho and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as the only vocal acts that have been confirmed for the inauguration. They will be joined by the Rockettes as well as the Talladega Marching Tornadoes, the marching band for Alabama’s historically black Talladega College.
In contrast, Barack Obama had no trouble securing music legends for his inaugurations, which saw the likes of Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, U2 and Bruce Springsteen perform.
We’re glad to see that Marie Osmond is willing to step up to the plate and perform for our next president. Do you think Trump should book Donny and Marie for his inauguration? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
