Chrisette Michele Releases a Statement in Response to UpcomingTrump Inauguration Performance

 

After recieveing much backlash from the public and her fans over her scheduled performance at the Trump inauguration, Christette Michele releases a statement. She responded via her website richhipster.squarespace.com Read full response below

“My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us.

I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain.

This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.

Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.

I am here.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”.

I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.”

 

– Chrisette Michele

I’m not sure how much of a response this is but this is what the singer had to say about ‘those stones’ being thrown at her.
