President-elect Donald Trump just lined up Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sam Moore for a pre-inaugural concert the day before he is sworn in as the 45th president.

On Tuesday, the Grammy award-winning 81-year-old soul singer announced that he would be singing at the “Make America Great Again” concert on Thursday night along with country singers Lee Greenwood, Toby Keith and the rock band 3 Doors Down, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“As an American, I am honored to perform for President-elect Donald Trump,” Moore said. “I was a participant in the civil rights movement and have seen many positive changes and advancement in my 81 years of living in this wonderful Country, but I know we must all join hands and work together with our new President.” (RELATED: Big & Rich To Perform At Inaugural Gala)

“I honestly believe that if we can accomplish this, the best is yet to come,” he added. “We all as Americans need to unite behind our new President and give him a chance. He needs everyone’s support to make America greater, stronger and an even better Country.”

Moore also commented on the backlash performers like Jennifer Holliday and Andrea Bocelli received and said there’s no chance he would be backing out of the even.

“I am not going to let them, the left side, intimidate me from doing what I feel is the right thing to do for the country and that [presidential] seal,” Moore said, according to another report. “Give the man a shot. He hasn’t even said ‘I do’ yet. Give him a chance. If you don’t like him after four years, then don’t vote for him next time.”
