According to reports, the songstress, who’s already had a tough year, declined the President-elect’s invitation to perform at his inauguration ceremony on January 20, in Washington, D.C. The Wrap reports that Trump and his team planning the event, led by longtime colleague and Celebrity Apprentice producer Mark Burnett, attempted to book Dion, but plans fell through.
The Donald’s other friend Steve Wynn had also promised to get the singer on board, but failed to pull through. Dion isn’t the only star to dump Trump’s invitation. Country singer Garth Brooks and opera star Andrea Bocelli also reportedly passed on the opportunity to perform at the future POTUS’s Inauguration.
