A singer quit the famous band- saying that she could ‘never ‘throw roses to Hitler’ and ‘could never sing for him’.
President-elect Donald Trump might be aspiring for a more stately inauguration – now that celebrities and glitzy performers are rejecting his invitations – but even a Mormon choir singer has joined the growing list of abstainers who have refused to show up for the ceremony.In a moving letter to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s president and fellow members a female singer announced her resignation – citing her ‘deep patriotic feelings’ as a determining factor in her decision.
‘I’ve tried to tell myself that by not going to the inauguration that I would be able to stay in choir for all the other good reasons.
I’ve tried to tell myself that it will be all right and that I can continue in good conscience before God and man’ Jan Chamberlin wrote in the letter that she later posted on Facebook.
‘But it’s no use.
I simply cannot continue with the recent turn of events.
I could never look myself in the mirror again with self respect’.Chamberlin concluded the letter by writing: ‘I only know I could never ‘throw roses to Hitler.’And I certainly could never sing for him’(cont..)
