Al Green Turned Down Inaugural Ball Invitation
The singer says he'd be "honored" to perform for President Obama at a later date.
Al Green passed up the opportunity to get together with President Obama.
A representative for the singer told the Associated Press that Green was invited to sing at the inaugural ball earlier this week, but scheduling conflicts prevented him from attending. Instead, Jennifer Hudson serenaded the POTUS and first lady with Green's "Let's Stay Together" on Monday.
Last year, President Obama famously sang a snippet of the song during a campaign event that Green attended.
Though it is not yet clear what scheduling conflict prevented Green from attending the event, the artist said that he would be honored to perform for the president at a future date.
