Recently, we’ve seen that no celebrity is exempt from the left’s bullying for committing to perform at President-Elect Trump’s inauguration—even Youtube sensations “The Piano Guys.”
But unlike many of the other celebrities who committed and have since backed out, the four musicians have stood their ground.
Today, they released a short statement explaining why they accepted the invitation. In it, they were gracious, kind, and genuine—rare qualities for celebrities of any caliber to exhibit, it sometimes seems.
Check out their Facebook post, below (via Chicks On The Right):
The full statement begins with a heartbreaking moment:
“Last night as I was kissing my daughter good night she asked me in an innocent, but tentative tone, “Daddy, why are people mad at you?” It brought tears to my eyes.”
And then, they ended their message with this:
“To our friends who have felt disturbed by our involvement, we want you to know that this doesn’t lessen our gratitude for what you have done for us. Not one bit. We still feel indebted to you. We love you. You give our music wings! We sincerely hope and pray for your understanding. We don’t feel right limiting our positive message only to people that believe or act the same way we do. We haven’t changed our message. We haven’t changed who we are, what we stand for, or what our music means and why we write it. We’re still doing what we’ve always done – playing for anyone who will hear our musical message with the hope that it persuades its listeners to love others.”
What an important testament.
If there’s anything our country could use more of, it’s celebrities like that.
