Andrea Bocelli backs out of singing at Trump's inauguration after receiving death threats | Daily Mail Online


Opera star Andrea Bocelli backs out of singing at Trump's inauguration after receiving death threats.


Blind tenor Bocelli announced he would not sing at this Friday's celebration
Widely reported it was because fan said they would boycott his concerts
Revelation came as another singer, Jennifer Holliday, last night pulled out

Opera star Andrea Bocelli backed out of singing at Donald Trump's inauguration after receiving death threats, The Mail on Sunday has learnt.

The revelation came as another singer Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday last night pulled out of the President-elect's festivities after being threatened and branded an 'Uncle Tom'.

When blind tenor Bocelli announced he would not sing at this Friday's celebration, it was widely reported it was because fans had said they would boycott his concerts and records.

But a source said the 58-year-old had been determined to 'press ahead' and sing but had pulled out on the advice of his security team after receiving threats to his life.

A source close to Bocelli, a friend of Trump's, said: 'Andrea is very sad to be missing the chance to sing at such a huge global event but he has been advised it is simply not worth the risk.'

Singer Holliday, 56, famed for her performance as Effie in Dreamgirls, had originally said she was 'determined' to sing for Trump despite voting against him.

She also denounced the abuse she was getting and called it an attack on freedom of speech.

However, last night she said that she had not realised her participation in the inauguration show would be interpreted as support for the President-elect.

Holliday, who has performed for the Clintons, both George W Bush and his father, and the Reagans, issued a statement apologising to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans for being 'uneducated' on the issues.

She wrote: 'My only choice must now be to stand with the LGBT community and to state unequivocally that I will not perform for the welcome concert or for any of the inauguration festivities.'

Stars including Elton John and Celine Dion have declined invitations to sing at the ceremony. Only a handful of relatively unknown performers have been confirmed, including singer Jackie Evancho, who won America's Got Talent, and country star Toby Keith, who is little known outside the US.

A spokesman for Bocelli declined to comment.

Elections have consequences. Bend over liberals and spread them wide. We are not going to use lube.

The American Left has revealed its true colours these past few years.
There is NOTHING they wouldn't do to further their power or extract their
revenge on enemies real or suspected. They are the biggest bully in town
while proclaiming their disapproval of bullies. Truth means absolutely nothing
to them. They have proven themselves as the most base tool of evil.

Why are these people so intimidated?

Shit, invite me. I'll sing my ass off.

They need to drop all the entertainment, do the swearing in, and get to work.

He's the most controversial and disliked president elect in the history of your country. This was to be expected. Get over it.
They have every right to say no, and don't even have to give a reason.

The same was said about the current POS who almost ruined our country. NOW we have a chance to straighten it all out and get back on track.

I can understand famous people not wanting to do something that brings death threats.

What's really sad is the people coming with those threats in the first place.

Except Obama won by a landslide, whereas Trump didn't even get the majority of the votes.

He played by the rules and won the electoral college. Popular vote isn't how the game is played.

It's not Trump. Libs would have the same tantrum for any republican that would have won.

Robbie, you're missing the "how" of the disagreeing. To disagree is fine but there are plenty of libtards going off the deep end, as usual.

Apples and oranges! The electoral college is how it's played! You've been around long enough to know that.

Too bad we can't deport them to Syria or somewhere they might fit in. That said, if the shit ever really hits the fan, they will be the first to go, and no one will miss their whining asses. Just my .02!

Without the electoral college, it would be nothing more than mob rule. It is a good thing it was set up that way by the founding fathers. Most of the country wanted nothing to do with Hitlery, but huge concentrations of the U.S. population ie: California, New York City, and anywhere with illegals voting could sway the election. Hell, even if Hitlery was elected, I dang sure would not have liked it, but since I have a job to go to, to support my family and put a roof over my head, I damn sure wouldn't be trying to disrupt things to the extent they do. I would be too busy....ummmmm.....working.....

Exactly.
 
Why is it that we in this country need to turn everything into a floorshow? You can't just have a football game and invite the local college band to perform at halftime. Now you have to have Beyonce or Lady Gaga doing a mini-concert. You can't have nine-innings of baseball. Now, we need to have some local organization parade around the field to remind everyone of all the good they took it upon themselves to do, have a mass-swearing in of recruits, etc. Good grief.

Just swear in the President, let him do the Inaugural Address and then everyone go home.
