Orlando is best known for the 1973 No. 1 hit “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.” He is set to perform at Friday night’s Salute to Our Armed Services Ball. That ball is free by invitation only for members and veterans of the armed services and their families. It will be at the National Building Museum.
Two other events, called Liberty and Freedom: The Official Presidential Inaugural Balls, will be Friday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
A limited number of $50-per-person tickets are available to the general public.
