Thursday night after Ivanka Trump walked on stage to The Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun," George Harrison's estate tweeted, "The unauthorized use of #HereComesTheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate." Harrison wrote the song.
According to NBC, Pavarotti's wife and daughters asked the campaign to quit playing an aria the tenor performed. They reportedly wrote in a letter, "the values of brotherhood and solidarity that Luciano Pavarotti upheld throughout his artistic career are incompatible with the world vision of the candidate Donald Trump."
