Recently news broke that R&B songstress has agreed to perform at the inauguration for Donald Trump.
Her decision upset many of her fans, and has caused her to receive a lot of backlash on social media.
On Thursday, the day before the inauguration she released an open letter to the public and said:
“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 Michele
We Can’t Be Present If We’re Silent”
One person who made his disappointment known was none other than Spike Lee, he took to Instagram to say:
Roommates what are your thoughts?
