The Radio City Rockettes and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence in Washington next month, Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn said Thursday.
The Inauguration on January 20th, 2017 has been reportedly having difficulty finding entertainment acts to perform for the crowds.
The release says U.S. Presidential Inauguration Committee invited the choir to sing at the event.
In 1965, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang for President Lyndon B. Johnson's inauguration.
"Singing the music of America is one of the things we do best", Jarrett said.
The choir sang at the swearing-in festivities of Presidents Lyndon Johnson in 1965, Richard Nixon in 1969 and George H.W. Bush in 1989.
The announcement comes after Trump has struggled to find talent willing to perform for his inauguration.
President George H.W. Bush kept one of President Ronald Reagan's traditions by inviting the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to perform at his 1989 inauguration.
The choir is comprised of 360 volunteer members. In 1963 and 1978 respectively, presidents John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter heard the choir perform in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. The list includes Celine Dion, Elton John, Garth Brooks and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Evancho, like Trump, has roots in reality television, making the finals of "America's Got Talent" in 2010.
This will be the choir's sixth appearance at a presidential inauguration in the last 50 years.
The choir has performed for five additional presidents, beginning with President William Howard Taft, who attended a concert in the Tabernacle on September 26, 1909.
