On January 20, is Donald Trump officially inaugurated as the new president of the United States. There is of course a large-scale ceremony with a lot of musical artists. A problem for Trump, because most of the performers fell during the election campaign over each other to get their support for the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to speak, of Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake to Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus.

There is currently only one name: Jackie Evancho, a 16-year-old singer from America’s Got Talent her version of the American national anthem will bring. Just as it seemed that Andrea Bocelli would occur, but the team of Trump has a request from the Italian tenor is denied. At least, that says Thomas J. Barrack Junior, the spokesman of the committee that Trumps inauguration in the right direction. “Thank you for the offer,” Trump, according to music site Consequence of Sound against Bocelli said. “You’re my friend, you are always welcome in the White House.’

Furthermore, always the same names back to act: Kid Rock, Ted Nugent – a hardrockzanger that advocates for free gun ownership – and country singer Garth Brooks. Elton John, one of the favorite artists of Trump, and thanked himself for the honor. Or Trump is already a request sent to the other stars who supported him during the campaign, such as Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal and Gene Simmons of Kiss, is not clear
