    Members of the "Radio City Rockettes" perform during their annual "Christmas in August" event outside Radio City Music Hall on 6th Avenue, August 23, 2016, in New York City.

    The Mormon Tabernacle Choir agreed Thursday to sing at Donald Trump's presidential inauguration — and not everybody back home in Utah is applauding.

    Best known for soaring renditions of religious and patriotic music, the 360-member Salt Lake City-based choir is one of just a handful of acts that Team Trump has been able to sign up for the Jan. 20 ceremony.

    The chief spokesman of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints acknowledged the choir is already taking flak for agreeing to be part of the festivities, NBC News reported.

    It was also announced Thursday that the high-kicking Rockettes, of Radio City Music Hall fame, would be performing.
