Skank & sellout#1: Jen Holliday (& I am telling you...) to sing at Trump's inauguration: VINDICATED!


President-elect Trump's big inauguration concert at Washington, D.C.'s Lincoln Memorial got a bit more star power.

Country artist Toby Keith, singer Jennifer Holliday and southern rock band 3 Doors Down have been added to the lineup for the pre-inauguration concert Jan. 19, the Inaugural Committee said Friday.

So far, a narrative shaping Trump's inauguration has been the perception that major entertainment industry names have refused invites to perform at the festivities. Especially since a star-studded Women's March on Washington is planned for the day after the inauguration.

Prior to Friday's unveiling, Cowboy Troy, country band Big & Rich and America's Got Talent singer Jackie Evancho were among the entertainers who were listed as performing at Trump celebrations.

"President-elect Trump has made it clear that this inaugural is of, by, and for the American people. The 58th Inaugural will celebrate American history and heritage, while setting the course to a brighter and bolder future for all Americans," said chairman Tom Barrack in a press release. "Above all, it will serve as tribute to one of our greatest attributes, the peaceful transition of partisan power."
The Lincoln Mall celebration will also include military band performances and a fireworks show, the Inaugural Committee said.

Even Marie Osmond (!) refused to sing at his inauguration!

This points up the diff between Skanky Jen and Janelle Monet's character in "Hidden Figures," i.e., both are/were broke and desperate for a job/career -- only one sold out the race to white supremacists for hers.

Janelle :bd:

:piss: Jennifer

For those who don't know her, Jennifer Holliday was in the broadway production of "Dream Girls." Until Jennifer Hudson covered "I am telling you I'm not going" in the movie by that name, it was Holliday's signature song..... for which she won a Best Actress Tony award (for Dream Girls) as well as a grammy for "And I am telling you...."






(seriously, the skank lays to waste my girl, Jen Hud's cover. Seriously :yes: )

Now check out Jen Hud's version:



Sorry, but for sheer, raw, gut-roiling emotion, the skank wins..... hands down.

Oh the skank who lost at least 150 pounds and (now) makes Jen Hud look fat! (I swear - her church came to mine and I couldn't believe that teeny, tiny, anorexic-looking woman was Holliday.... until she sang a solo ;) )

Thank you, thank you, :thanx: !!! The article below re-establishes my love for this GIANT talent! :hug:
=========================

Jennifer Holliday Pulls Out of Trump Inauguration, Apologizes to LGBT Community (Exclusive)


Jennifer Holliday has canceled her appearance atDonald Trump's inauguration event next week,calling her decision to perform a "lapseof judgement."

In an open letter, provided exclusively toTheWrap, the "Dreamgirls" starapologized to the LGBT community, saying she was "uneducated on the issues that affect every American at this crucial time in history and for causing such dismay and heartbreak to my fans."

The Tony and Grammy winner came under fire from some of her fans on Friday after it was announced that she was set toperform at a concert as part of Trump's inauguration festivities.

Holliday, considered a longtime LGBT ally, explained that she changed her mind after reading a Friday Daily Beaststorytitled, "Jennifer Holliday Will Perform at Trump's Inauguration, Which Is Heartbreaking to Gay Fans."

The article argued that the singer's decision to participate in the inaugural event was "an act that seems to defy everything her most passionate supporters stand for, and even issues she herself has supported throughout her career."

"My only choice must nowbe to stand with the LGBT Community and to state unequivocally that I WILL NOT PERFORM FOR THE WELCOME CONCERT OR FOR ANY OF THE INAUGURATION FESTIVITIES!"

Holliday ends her letter telling her gay fans: "Please know that I HEAR YOU and I feel your pain. The LGBT Community was mostly responsible for birthing my career and I am deeply indebted to you... You have loved me faithfully and unconditionally and for so many years you provided me with work even though my star had long since faded."

On Friday, Trump's inauguration team announced that she would perform, along with Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood and other entertainers, in a Jan. 19 event at the Lincoln Memorial called the "Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration."

fans were surprised by the inclusion of Holliday, best known as the original Effie White in Broadway's original production of "Dreamgirls."

Holliday told the New York Timesthat she had been "startled and disheartened" by the "venom that greeted the news of her participation."

According to the Times, Holliday "sounded certain about her choice." But her publicist Bill Carpenter later told TheWrap that she had not yet committed to the event, eventually confirming her participation a few hours later.

Read Holliday's full letter below.

MY BELOVED LGBT COMMUNITY:

Please allow me this opportunity to speak to you directly and to explain why I originally made my decision to perform at the inauguration whichwas what I had thought would be my simply keeping in my tradition of being a "bi-partisan songbird" having sung for Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush.

I was asked to sing a song for what was presented to me as the "Welcome Concert For The People"- in my mind I was reflecting on thepast times of being asked to sing for presidents and I only focused on the phrase "For The People"... I thought, For America!

I was honestly just thinking that I wanted my voice to bea healing and unifying force for hope through music to help our deeply polarized country... Regretfully, I did not take into consideration that my performing for the concert would actually instead be taken as a political act against my own personal beliefs and be mistaken for support of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

In light of the information pointed out to me via the Daily Beast article on yesterday, my only choice must nowbe to stand with the LGBT Community and to state unequivocally that I WILL NOT PERFORM FOR THE WELCOME CONCERT OR FOR ANY OF THE INAUGURATION FESTIVITIES!

I sincerely apologize for my lapseof judgement, for being uneducated on the issues that affect every American at this crucial time in history and for causing such dismay and heartbreak to my fans.

Please know that I HEAR YOU and I feel your pain. The LGBT Community was mostly responsible for birthing my career and I am deeply indebted to you... You have loved me faithfully and unconditionally and for so many years you provided me with work even though my star had long since faded.

Thank you for communicating with me, I had no idea that I still meant so much to all of you.


Thank you for your posted comments both the good supportive ones as well as the ugly hurtful ones.

With LOVE & Appreciation,

JENNIFER HOLIDAY
"The Original DreamGirl"

Well, there U have it. The "Yellow mellow peas" are running the country. Now lets SEE if they'll REMEMBER Mrs Holliday for her act or courage. U know. Set her up with a couple of PAYING GIGS.

But if History has taught us anything. Ur only as useful, until NOT NEEDED.
