Rebecca Ferguson said she has been asked to perform at Donald Trump's presidential inauguration, and she has agreed under one condition: that she can sing the anti-racism anthem "Strange Fruit."
Regarding her possible appearance at the Jan. 20 ceremony, the British X-Factor alum shared a statement that reads: "I've been asked and this is my answer. If you allow me to sing 'strange fruit' a song that has huge historical importance, a song that was blacklisted in the United States for being too controversial.
"A song that speaks to all the disregarded and down trodden black people in the United States. A song that is a reminder of how love is the only thing that will conquer all the hatred in this world, then I will graciously accept your invitation and see you in Washington."
