Donald Trump is said to be personally wooing a celebrity to perform at his inauguration — and the celebrity, Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, may be poised to take him up on the offer.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the president-elect has personally approached Bocelli, who is in New York for an appearance Thursday at Madison Square Garden and is said to be meeting Friday with Trump.
The report quotes a source saying: “Trump has a long-standing relationship with Bocelli, and wants to ask him in person to perform. The plan is to have acts at the inauguration that are meaningful for Trump, and he’s a huge fan of Bocelli.”
Trump hosted a Bocelli performance at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida in 2010, and the Trump family attended Bocelli’s free Central Park concert in 2011.
