Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Rockettes Set to Perform at Trump Inauguration

The inauguration is set for Jan. 20

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir agreed Thursday to sing at Donald Trump's presidential inauguration — and not everybody back home in Utah is applauding.

Best known for soaring renditions of religious and patriotic music, the 360-member Salt Lake City-based choir is one of just a handful of acts that Team Trump has been able to sign up for the Jan. 20 ceremony.

The chief spokesman of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints acknowledged the choir is already taking flak for agreeing to be part of the festivities, NBC News reported.

It was also announced Thursday that the high-kicking Rockettes, of Radio City Music Hall fame, would be performing.
