Jan Chamberlin : Mormon Tabernacle Choir quits over president-elect Donald Trump inauguration performance

Mormon choir member quits over Trump inauguration performance
Jan Chamberlin says performing with Mormon Tabernacle Choir, one of few acts scheduled for 20 January, would be ‘endorsing tyranny and fascism’.

Point made! This member of the Mormon Tabernacle choir took to Facebook to explain why she can't sing at the inauguration... and why she can no longer be a member of the choir she loves so much. What do you think of her post? Let me know in your comments!

The choir’s acceptance of an invitation to sing at the event has divided Mormons, who largely backed Trump in the election despite their uneasiness with the Republican candidate during the campaign.
But Janet Chamberlin, a member of the 360-person choir, has chosen to quit after spending “several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony” as she prayed and reflected on her choice, reported the Salt Lake Tribune.
