Ellie Goulding will perform at Salvation Army’s game after threatening not to


Ellie Goulding will perform at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving game after briefly threatening to pull out due to The Salvation Army’s position on the LGBT issues. The halftime concert marks the beginning of the Christian charity’s annual Red Kettle Campaign, which helps provide food and shelter for the homeless. But when Goulding’s social media followers informed her about the charity’s anti-LGBT record, the singer said she would cancel her performance. However, she later backtracked on it. In a statement from David Hudson, national commander of The Salvation Army, said the musician allegedly took the “time to learn about the services we provide to the LGBTQ community. Regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, we’re committed to serving anyone in need,” Fox News reported. The singer’s representatives are yet to respond to the comment request.
