Veterans of country music will perform at the swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol Building in the US.
Country music icon Garth Brooks will perform at the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris on Wednesday. The presidential inauguration committee revealed Brooke’s performance at a press conference on Monday.
“It’s a great day in our house, it’s not a political statement, it’s a statement of unity,” Brooks said on Monday. “This is history, and it is an honor to receive service.”
Brooks says he was asked to perform by Dr. Jill Biden last week and decided to do so Sunday night. Garth Brooks
will be part of the swearing-in ceremony at the American Capitol, not the concert or parade programming held for the day after Wednesday. Brooks will join Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, who is also slated to perform at the opening ceremonies.
Every presidential election has a common theme: new beginnings, new beginnings, but it’s a unity word, love word, a word that we belong to each other. It’s going to take all of us, which is what I want. Brooks said that we all have to listen. “We are more divided than ever, the bridge that brings us together, it loves each other, because it is our most divided time to get us through Going to do.”
Brooks says that he has performed for every president since Jimmy Carter, with the exception of Ronald Reagan. He also performed at the inauguration of Barack Obama in 2008, and was asked to do so at the inauguration of President Trump in 2016, but was unable to attend a concert he attended in Cincinnati.
In this case, you should move beyond red and blue, black and white, gay and straight, man and woman,” Brooks said. More than the way they came. “
He also recalled one of his favorite quotes, which, aptly, was Drs. Martin Luther King Jr. comes from: “We cannot begin to live until we rise above the narrowness of our own individualist concerns, and focus on the broader concerns of all. Humanity.”
