The Internet went wild when news r&b singer Chrisette Michele will perform at Donald Trump's inauguration. Those who object to the performance believe people of color should not participate in celebrating a man who has made racist and misogynistic statements throughout his campaign.

Michele, today, released a statement a rather cryptic statement that does not explicitly confirm or deny a performance.

"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


We still can't be sure Ms. Michele will be present to welcome the incoming president, but it appears that she's certainly heard the backlash.
