Celine Dion won’t be an A-list star of the inauguration of Donald Trump. The Canadian songstress rejected President-elect’s offer to be a performer for his January ceremony.
Donald Trump is seeking for the A-list stars who will be able to perform in his inauguration ceremony scheduled on January 20, 2017. Celine Dion rejected his offer to entertain publicon the January 20 ceremony, leaving the inauguration with no A-list star just four weeks out from the big day.
As a matter of fact, Celine Dion might be a star for the inauguration concert thanks to Steve Wynn. This billionaire is a Las Vegas hotelier who is a longtime friend of the businessman-turned-president. But Dion said ‘no’.
Wynn also promised Trump country music star Garth Brooks, who had a four-year residency deal with the hotel. So now, Trump’s people struggles to get any A-lister to play at his party. It is worth to remember, President Barack Obama’s inaugurations in 2013 and 2009 boasted performances from Beyonce and Aretha Franklin.
At least, the national anthem will be performed by one of the finalists of America’s Got Talent child singer Jackie Evancho. Actually, the bombastic show after the state ceremony of an inauguration is more commercial than a political issue. Inauguration, oath, anthem — more than enough, in fact.
