Lee Greenwood, who will perform at inaugural events this week for President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, suggested that those who turn down the chance will later regret missing the opportunity.
He said that he had not heard that Jennifer Holliday, announced as a performer at the opening concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday, backed out of the appearance on Saturday, citing the negative reaction she got on social media.
“She is going to regret not going in the future,” Greenwood said. “You don’t get this invitation very often.”
He added, “To say no — I can’t imagine the embarrassment she might have later on” for passing it up.
He called it a “thrill” to witness the peaceful transition of power, at an event that he said was unique in the world. “You need to support him and all the things he plans to do for America, and not bow down to what is said on social media and gossip. I feel sorry for people who would turn down this invitation.”
