British singer Charlotte Church has become the latest musician to turn down a request to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration—and Church’s refusal is one of the shortest and bluntest yet.

On Tuesday, singer Rebecca Ferguson released a statement saying that she had declined to perform for Trump after his team told her she couldn’t sing iconic anti-lynching protest song “Strange Fruit.”
So far, the administration has been able to book America’s Got Talent star Jackie Evancho, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and The Rockettes. Some Rockettes have repeatedly spoken out against the decision.
