Now that the cat is out of the bag, Chrisette Michele is speaking out about her performance at Donald Trump‘s inauguration.
In a post on her official website, the R&B singer said her “heart is broken for our country” and added that she is “willing to be a bridge.”
Chrisette went on to say she doesn’t mind the “stones” if they “allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.”
My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us.
I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain.
This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.
Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.
I am here.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”. I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.” – Chrisette Michele
