The Mormon church choir is set to sing at Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20. The official choir of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has confirmed it last week. “At the request of the U. S. Presidential Inauguration Committee, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has accepted an invitation to sing at the swearing-in ceremony during the presidential inauguration at the U.S. Capitol next month in Washington, D.C.” they wrote in their statement.
It will be the sixth time the choir has performed at inaugural events for a President, following on from George W. Bush (2001), George H. W. Bush (1989), Ronald W. Reagan (1981). Richard M. Nixon (1969), and Lyndon B. Johnson (1965). Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir said: “Singing the music of America is one of the things we do best. We are honored to be able to serve our country by providing music for the inauguration of our next president.”
