Despite reports of a surprise performance ,Kanye West won’t be performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration . The president-elect’s inauguration committee chose not to invite the rapper to perform at the festivities despite his friendship with the business mogul.
The chair of the inauguration committee, Tom Barrack, told CNN of rumors of a surprise West cameo.
“We haven’t asked him,”“He considers himself a friend of the president-elect, but it’s not the venue. The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it’s perfect, it’s going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy, but we just haven’t asked him to perform.”
Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, the Piano Guys, soul singer Sam Moore, gospel singer Travis Greene and Chrisette Michele will all take the stage at the “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” concert on Thursday, January 19.
