The organizers of the festivities surrounding the coronation of Charles III could not find a singer to animate the party. But an American rapper has already agreed to perform for the royal family.
The organizers of the coronation of Charles III are struggling to recruit singers to animate the festivities surrounding the British event. But one American rapper has indicated that he is more than willing to sing in front of the king and the royal family on May 6 in London. Rapper Snoop Dogg said in an interview with the Daily Express that he would accept the request on one condition. “The only way I can perform is if they give me one of their uniforms to wear. The red one,” the 51-year-old artist said, referring to the iconic uniform worn by the famous King’s Guard outside Buckingham Palace and St. James’s Palace. “I always wanted to wear one of these uniforms,” he added in the columns of the British newspaper.
For several weeks, the organizers of the coronation of Charles III have been worried about not finding artists to sing at the concert that will follow the ceremony. Elton John, Adele, Harry Styles, Robbie Williams, the Spice Girls and Ed Sheeran have all declined for various reasons, including a scheduling problem. “Elton John was at the top of Charles III’s list, but he will be in the middle of a European tour, with a concert in Germany on the previous Friday, and another one very soon after the Windsor concert”, explained a source close to the case in the columns of The Sun last February. On the other hand, Lionel Richie confirmed that he will be there to celebrate this historic event.
Street parties and concert in Windsor
The coronation of Charles III and Camilla, which will take place in Westminster Abbey in London, should be very festive with 2 000 guests. The coronation ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 6, and will be followed on Sunday by street parties, in the form of communal picnics and neighbors’ parties. Then, in the evening, the famous concert in Windsor will be held with several artists.
