Al Green Turned Down Invite to Sing at Inaugurals
Al Green says if things had worked out, it would have been him serenading President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle at the inaugural ball.
Jennifer Hudson sang Green’s classic “Let’s Stay Together,” leaving myself and many to wonder why the soul legend wasn’t singing his own hit for the first couple.
A rep said Al Green had been asked to sing, but scheduling conflicts prevented him from attending Monday’s festivities. Al said he’d be honored to sing for the president in the future.
