Chrisette Michele Set to Perform for the Trump Inauguration


R&B singer Chrisette Michele has graciously agreed to sacrifice the goodwill of her core demographic to perform for the upcoming Trump inauguration...

From The Daily News
Singer Chrisette Michele will join the party ushering in Trump's presidency, according to sources close to the festivities.
We're told that the deal was reached a week ago, but has been kept "a big secret" because Michelle's camp feared the seven days of criticism that would surely lead up the the divisive President-elect's big day. They became especially concerned when Jennifer Holliday, who'd committed to performing for PEOTUS last week, withdrew amidst heavy pressure on Monday, citing "a lapse of judgment."
Our insiders say that inauguration organizers first reached out to Michele's team asking her to perform the song "Intentional" with singers Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds, and Tye Tribbett — the same trio with whom she did that tune on BET's "Celebration of Gospel" broadcast one year ago. We're told that plan fell apart when at least two of those three singers declined the offer. But, according to our sources, Michelle agreed to sing for the Prez so long as she could perform an R&B set.

the black community can be so hypocritical at times everyone knows who she is Grammy award-winning singer she hasn't had work in a minute but I'm sure she's going to kill the performance everyone who says they aren't going to watch will be the first ones watching front and center with the bag of popcorn stop the hate. You Foils Worship these Celebs every word but Guaranteed you'll Never Hear nor Receive a check from Anyone of them when Rent is Due.

Has anyone ever thought she might be planning a protest song? What better way to get your message out than to pull an Eartha Kitt and tell him what you think of him right to his face. (You know Ms. Kitt was Blackballed after that and had to work overseas?)

I guess some of you are not broad thinkers and would rather sit behind a computer talking trash. I really think she and the British girl who's going to sing "Strange Fruit" are smart and gutsy. Maybe Black folks can get out of their own way long enough to think bigger and thus make a bigger impact.

^^^^Thank you!!!!! They are going to need our support. The way to make change is to communicate what you want, not stick your head in the sand or sulk and be mad. Protest is not easy, that's why there are so many people with the guts to do it!

^(So few people who do it, rather)

1:12 - They blocked her from singing "Strange Fruit" but that was a power move on her part to accept the invitation and protest/Shade the hell out of him to his face! More people need to do that.

Good looking with the info. I'm thinking more deeply about what you said.

@1:12 - I didn't know that info until I watched Eartha's Unsung. We need to know our history!

@1:05PM. Just because she won a Grammy does not mean everyone knows who she is. Many artists win Grammys every year that no one has heard of before or remembers afterwards. I personally never heard of her. Maybe I've heard one of her songs and I didn't know it was her but I'm not interested enough to GOOGLE her to find out.

Unbelievable. She's just barely hanging on as it is...

This is not the first time Chrisette has cooned. She also encouraged Black people to "protest" with class. As if class has nothing to do with the situation Black people have been put into.

I'my sorry. She did this for attention not to "protest" for the people. Some of you are giving her way too much credit. I'll wait until after the inauguration to really go in on her ass. Then we will all know for sure if she performed in protest or in support. Sorry but this is black or white. Either you are supporting him or you're not.There is not this gray area she and others (like Steve Harvey) are trying to create. Trust Trump and his supporters are looking at her as a black woman and attributing all the stereotypes they have of black people to her. They are not looking at her as some performer who has no race. Also I will certainly not watch her performance. Will wait to hear from the news if she sang in protest. I will not give Trump any support in the former of ratings either. Make sure you have your TV on but NOT turned to the inauguration. This way Nielson will record it as someone who did not watch inauguration and his ratings will be low. In conclusion I'm disappointed at Crisette and her big sneaky plan (intentionally not announcing for days her plans to sing) to stab black people in the back. I was a fan and have bought her music in the past. Unless she shocks me with a song in protest, I personally will never support anything she does again.

The fact she hid was proof in the pudding

Well said, 7:52. A measured and calm response with no name calling. A breath of fresh air and I appreciate it!

The petulance here is too much for words. Keep protesting yourselves into further obscurity. Life is a chess match against all obstacles both perceived and real. I guess niggas gone always be niggas!
