Rachel Platten Did Not Approve of 'Fight Song' Performance at Trump's Inaugural Ball

Rachel Platten is speaking out after The Piano Guys performed her song “Fight Song” during Donald Trump‘s Inaugural Ball.

The song was heavily used throughout Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign and Rachel says she did not approve of the use of her song.

“While I respect the office of the President and the peaceful transfer of power, I want to make clear that at at no point did the Piano Guys ask for permission, nor did I or anyone on my team know of, approve or endorse their decision to play Fight Song tonight,” Rachel wrote on Twitter.

Watch the performance below.

    Since this has been all over Facebook and has over 16M views, I am assuming that some royalty has been paid…and since they are not playing JUST her song, but a combination of Amazing Grace and her song, they may actually have the right to play this without additional permission. Too bad she has to be so snarky since this is a beautiful video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOO5qRjVFLw

    They need permission to play her song, even a snippet, PERIOD! Why do you think people are always getting sued for sampling other musician’s music?

    I said that since they had already done this version before and would have had permission to record it, they probably have the right to perform it elsewhere…meaning they didn’t need to get permission to play it at the ball.

    If it’s on tv you need permission. That was the worst performance ever, the guy can barely play the cello and has gay face. Just like pence, pence is gay, he got with a friend of mine and loves getting it in the ass and then mouth. He likes the taste of poo. Figures.
