Charlotte Church has become the latest artist to decline an invite to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration. Church established her musical career in opera as a child and did sing at George W. Bush's inauguration in 2001. However, she has gone on to become an outspoken political commentator in the U.K. and has campaigned against austerity measures in her hometown of Cardiff, Wales.
She tweeted earlier today, January 10, to say that she had been approached about the January 20 inauguration and used multiple poop emojis to state that she has no interest in playing.
@realDonaldTrump Your staff have asked me to sing at your inauguration, a simple Internet search would show I think you're a tyrant. Bye💩💩💩💩— Charlotte Church (@charlottechurch) January 10, 2017
Speaking to The New Statesman in 2016, Church said she would decline any invitation from Trump “because he is such a tool."
With 10 days until Trump's inauguration, the only names confirmed to appear so far are the Rockettes, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and America's Got Talent singer, Jackie Evancho.
