Rebecca Ferguson - I will perform at Trump's inauguration if I can sing "Strange Fruit"...


Rebecca Ferguson says she's been asked to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony.

The singer tweeted she would "graciously accept" the invitation from the American president-elect if she can perform Strange Fruit.

"[It's] a song that has huge historical importance, a song that was blacklisted in the United States," she posted.
Strange Fruit was originally recorded by Billie Holiday but was written as a poem by Abel Meeropol.

(For those who may not know, Strange Fruit was song about lynchings of black ppl)

Hillary Clinton: The Guardian person of the year 2016


Hillary Clinton: The Guardian person of the year 2016
By Debo Adesina | 01 January 2017 | 4:17 am


Love trumps hate. Good trumps evil. Light trumps darkness. Knowledge trumps ignorance. And hope will always trump despair. When Donald J Trump, the narcissistic real estate businessman, beat Hillary Rodham Clinton, former first lady and secretary of state to the presidency of the United States of America in the 2016 elections, a lie was practically put to almost all of those assertions.

With uncommon dignity, she ran a campaign of ideas for the future. But her opponent was and is a misogynist, a demagogue whose own ideas, to the extent that he had any, were warped, racist and downright insulting of our collective humanity. The appeal of Trump’s campaign to the American electorate is still a phenomenon under scrutiny but it is enough to say he found listening ears in a people who, in despair, chose to accept his retail of fear instead of Clinton’s message of hope. So, Trump trumps Clinton.

But, America is the loser. She lost to a man whose definition of the truth is its exact opposite, one whose skyscraper of empty promises on the way to that electoral victory dwarfed the flagship of his real estate holding.
