By now everyone knows Chrisette Michele’s soultry voice was asked to perform at one of the many venues for Donald Trump.
But the R&B singer received so much flack for agreeing to perform, we guess she felt compelled to write a open letter.
"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 #NoPoliticalGenius We Can't Be Present If We're Silent | LINK IN BIO
I don’t even know what to say. So…..I’ll just leave it at that.
Goodnight America and God Speed!
