Stellar Award Nominated Gospel Artist, Travis Greene told Erica Campbell on her radio show that he almost let the fear of man stop him from performing at Donald Trump’s Inaugural Ball.
“My first response was, ‘No, I’m not going to do it’ because of fear of man. But once I put prayer behind that, it just didn’t hold up very strongly,” the singer said. “It was an absolute carnal response to what I believe was a spiritual door.”
Greene said he was overwhelmed by the support and appreciation he received from the predominantly Christian crowd.
“What was very shocking was the greater majority of the crowd were Christians. People were running up to me and really thanking me for coming,” he said. “I think one of the reasons among many that God had me do it was because I think it was a great bridge and representation for the urban community and the Church at large.”
Even though Greene received some backlash for attending the event, he said he largely felt supported by his fans and those around him for his decision to be a part of history.
“I had a really good time, man. Honestly, there’s been a lot more support than backlash, a whole lot more support,” he said. “I think even the backlash a lot of them are upset over social issues. So really, I have a lot of grace toward them.”
