Roger Daltrey to Perform at Winston Churchill Ceremony
Roger Daltrey will perform next week at a U.S. Capitol ceremony honoring Winston Churchill. On Wednesday, October 30, congressional leaders and Secretary of State John Kerry will gather in National Statuary Hall to dedicate a bust of the former British prime minister.
The ceremony – which will air live on Speaker.gov – gets underway at 11:00 am ET.
“What better way to celebrate Winston Churchill’s friendship to the United States than to have one of Britain’s most legendary recording artists perform in the halls of the Capitol,” Speaker Boehner said. “Roger’s performance is sure to guarantee that the Churchill bust receives the first-class welcome it deserves.”
“I am pleased to be part of the celebration of Winston Churchill and the longstanding relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States,” Roger Daltrey, CBE, said. “I am honoured to be able to show my appreciation to this great man who, as our Prime Minister, fought for and secured freedom for Britain, America and the citizens of the world.”
