Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform at Trump's inauguration

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir announced Thursday its acceptance of the U.S. Presidential Inauguration Committee’s invitation to sing at President-elect Donald Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.

The choir’s performance will take place as part of Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s inauguration ceremony scheduled for Jan. 20, 2017 at the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C., according to a Mormon Newsroom press release. The choir will perform with the Marine Corps Band as Trump is sworn in, according to The Associated Press.

“We are honored to be able to serve our country by providing music for the inauguration of our next president,” Mormon Tabernacle Choir President Ron Jarrett said in the Mormon Newsroom release.

Singing at the U.S. presidential inaugurations is a “great tradition” of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Jarrett said. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has performed at the inaugurals of five other U.S. presidents, including Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.

1. Well, the Republicans can put on their dancing shoes, then

They can have a beat box front and center. I'll give "Rock of Ages" a 10, you can really dance to it.
