Rounding up the many, many musicians who have sent cease and desist letters to the President. Throughout Donald Trump’s election bid and presidency, the former reality star has attempted to use many musician’s songs as campaign anthems – however, for the most part, artists have asked not to be associated with him. Adele, The Rolling Stones, R.E.M., Luciano Pavarotti, Queen, George Harrison and more artists have refused to let him use their songs at public events. While former President Obama had many celebrities sing for him proudly throughout the years – Solange Knowles, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Nick Jonas, Usher and Chance the Rapper all attended his final White House party – Trump has had a more difficult time gaining celebrity support.
