Performer Re-writes Lyrics For Inauguration Song


Legendary singer and songwriter, Paul Anka, plans to customize his song “My Way” to honor Trump at the presidential inauguration.

Radar Online reported that Anka is planning to sing a modified version of this iconic song on January 20 to reflect the political path of President-elect Donald Trump.

An inside source told the media outlet, “Paul was asked by the members of the Trump inauguration committee and he was only too happy to do it for his longtime friend.”

The source added, “While everyone else was running scared from performing at the inauguration, Paul stood fast. He wasn’t about to be intimidated by anyone!”

Anka is well-known for writing the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and “She’s a Lady,” one of  Tom Jones’ mega-hits. He also is the name behind hits like “Diana”, “Lonely Boy”, “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” and “(You’re) Having My Baby.”

Anka wrote the English lyrics to Frank Sinatra’s signature song, “My Way,” which has been covered by countless famous singers, says Radar Online. The source told reporters, “Now, Paul has re-written those lyrics especially for Donald Trump, which he will perform during the inaugural dance for Donald and his lovely First Lady, Melania.”

The source made it clear that Anka wants it to be a surprise and has not revealed what the new lyrics are yet, but he promises that “it will be tailor-made for President Trump…and it will be huge!”
