Mormon Tabernacle Choir singer quits before inauguration performance because she could never “throw roses to Hitler.”

Her name is Jan Chamberlin, and this is part of what she wrote about her decision on Facebook: 

Since “the announcement”, I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony. I have reflected carefully on both sides of the issue, prayed a lot, talked with family and friends, and searched my soul. 

I’ve tried to tell myself that by not going to the inauguration, that I would be able to stay in Choir for all the other good reasons. 

I have highly valued the mission of the Choir to be good- will ambassadors for Christ, to share beautiful music and to give hope, inspiration, and comfort to others. 

I’ve tried to tell myself that it will be alright and that I can continue in good conscience before God and man. 

But it’s no use. I simply cannot continue with the recent turn of events. I could never look myself in the mirror again with self respect.

Towards the end of her post Chamberlin adds this: I only know I could never “throw roses to Hitler.” And I certainly could never sing for him.

So not only can Donald Trump NOT get any A listers to perform at his inauguration, now even the usually nameless dancers and singers are refusing to perform.

At this rate the only ones that will show up to perform for the inauguration of Putin's puppet will be one American idol runner up, Ted Nugent, and a choir hastily thrown together of Trump hotel employees.

On a slightly different topic, how is that Freedom Concert coming along?

    Now that's something you don't see everyday, a christian that actually lives by their personal values and ethics.

    Is Ted Nugent confirmed to be performing?

    High school bands refused to play

    Dancer refuses to throw her leg up for Trump's jellies

    Singer says nope, I ain't praising Hitler

    Looks Sarah Palin sold her soul to the devil to ride the trump train

    What is it about Trump that singers, dancers and A Listers won't perform for Melania's husband?

      Maybe a Slovenian band can be flown in so she feels at home? She may be a porn queen, but I doubt she's an idiot. Calculating, yes, and knows that America will NEVER accept her as First Lady. Staying NYC with Barron a convenient excuse.

      The short answer to your question, 12:20, is a single word: EVERYTHING!

    Good for her! Not sure why it was so agonizing for her though. Seems like a no brainer. I get that it must be very hard to give up her position, but she can say she was once a member of the choir, find another one and know that she has the admiration of millions of Americans - the real ones.

    And of course the right wing is attacking her now. How dare she insult the Fuhrer, er, president elect.

      They can attack all they want to, just like no talent Bristol. Some people still have scruples.

      Once he takes office, if he thinks people are going to bow down to him by order he has one RUDE awakening coming.

      Haha, request butthole in her monkey suit. Ryan and mitch the beeotch would love it and fat orange baster.

    I still say Roseanne for the Star Spangled Banner. Yuuuuge supporter and she did so well the last time MLB game.

    1. They've got the runner up to the 2010 America's Got Talent.

      There's an F-lister if there ever was one.

      Too bad Lawrence Welk isn't alive. I'm sure Trump would love him.

      This is an inaugural program the retirement home would dream up.

    Maybe Trump and Bannon could pursuade $tupid $arah to strap on the Belmonts, attach the butt pads, dust off her eff me shoes, and play her runner up flute.

    Old granny $arah would kill it playing covers of "I'm a little Teapot.

    With practice, maybe $arah could even be as good as this gal:

      AJB, that always conjures up the memory of her in the pleather skirt with butt pad, white jacket, ascending the stairs to the stage can't remember where it was now.

      Main picture circulated was her bending down to shake hands of her adoring populace, but the other of her climbing the stairs to that stage like a cow in her fancy heels was as LMAO worthy as her fake DDs in the pink blouse outside Fox!

      Maybe Barron can play his flute?? ;)

    3. Leland3:21 PM

      Aw, come on, 1:42! What the hell did the KID ever do to you? Many of us objected strenuously when President Obama's kids were attacked. What is different about Barron?

    4. Anonymous1:49 AM

      What's wrong with his kid playing his flute??? Give the kid a break. Where are you trying to go with this??? Twist away,3:21 ;o)

    What we all need just now:
    The, sadly final, Year In Pictures from the White House Photographer.

    1. Anonymous2:50 PM

      Thank you for posting the link. It was hard to look at these final White House photographs of the President and his wonderful family without breaking down.

      This particular post in the comment section reflects my feelings perfectly...

      "These photos, of this wonderful President and his beautiful wife, are giving me life right now. I cannot believe the white house is about to be infested with oozing orange slime. Heartbreaking."

    The spin the Mormon church is trying to put on it is perhaps it will soften trumps heart by performing. And they call themselves christian????

    1. Anonymous2:10 PM

      Mormons are not Christian.

      Yes they are, now quit cutting down other religious sects. Your church is not the only one in the world.

    3. Anonymous1:53 AM

      Well you have to agree they have things in common with Trump. Many wives,money racket..

  11. Anonymous2:03 PM

    Maybe her courage will inspire many more from the choir to boycott the ho-down. Maybe not quit, but refuse to sing? The beauty of sound they produce should not be performed before the face of evil.

    I've not met many christians who live their faith, but I believe she qualifies for that honor.

    1. Anonymous2:36 PM

      By her post it sounded like not performing and staying in was an option. It's got me wondering about how many are choosing that option.

  12. Anonymous2:44 PM

    Well glad she has choices. Like we all should. Me, just stopped watching news at all because there is always a fat orange bastard on. Who is just a pediphile.

    16-year old singer Jackie Evancho - who came in 2nd place on America's Got Talent when she was 10 will be singing the National Anthem at the Inauguration. She and her transgender sister Juliet attend the same high school as my teens. Jackie and her parents have been extremely supportive of Juliet and LGBTQ issues - Can't imagine that they support Trump and the GOP. Maybe they're allowing Jackie to perform as a "patriotic duty" thing. (She has sung at two events during President Obama's administration.) I applaud the Mormon woman and all who are taking a stand against Trump.

    if you remember, even obama had some odd folks at his inauguration -- the closing prayer fellow for one. some megachurch preacher fellow. i was very dissapointed in that choice - but thought he was just trying to appease everyone.

    with trump - i can't imagine anyone with a moral compass would want to play or sing for him. this is just a horrible horrible story i wish would never start.

    i tell folks it is like finding out your father is a serial killer -- who could ever be prepared for such a horrible thing?
