Jan 19 2021
As all of your know, Garth has made his career focus loving one another along with Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez we can not think of a better trio of performer to join us at this swearing in.
According to ET Online, Brooks stressed his performance was not political, telling reporters: "I've played for every president there is, since Carter, with the exception of Reagan".
He didn't share what he'll sing but did say that it likely won't be "We Shall Be Free", because that's what he sang at Obama's inauguration.
"Performing the song again after such a long time is a huge honor because we all have deep respect for Beau's military service and such high hopes for the unity and normalcy Joe and Kamala will bring our country again in this time of crisis", Alexander added in his statement.
Dr. Jill Bidenasked him to appear at the ceremony last week, Brooks said, and he made his decision on Sunday night.
"If it's just me and a zoom lens right here, I see them, I see their faces because I have seen them", Brooks said. Brooks was also invited to perform at President Trump's inauguration in 2017 but declined due to a scheduling conflict with his ongoing tour at the time. "I might be the only Republican at this place, but it's about reaching across and loving one another".
Asked during the virtual press conference if he might consider playing either "The Change" or "The River", Brooks said, "Neither one of those had crossed my mind..."
"I want to spend the next 10 years of my life not divided".
'It felt like it was in some other country, but it was here.
Brooks joins Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen and JenniferLopez as performers.
The Biden-Harris era is about to begin in the USA after a few weeks of political turmoil following the attempted coup at the Capitol.
