Despite people saying she’s committing career suicide, Chrisette Michele has signed on to perform at the 2017 i.n.a.u.g.u.r.a.t.i.o.n.
In her words…
My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us. I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain. This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us. Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless. I am here. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”. I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.
Chrisette, I see what you’re trying to do sis. But why sacrifice your career for somebody else’s mistakes. Nobody told D.T. to burn the bridges that you’re now trying to re-build. Let him fix his own mistakes.
