Over the weekend, GRAMMY® Award-nominated gospel singer Travis Greene accepted the controversial invitation to be the opening act at President Donald Trump’s Liberty Ball.

For those who thought he would feel the wrath of the anti-Trump nation, he says, “Honestly, there’s been a lot more support than backlash.”

The “Intentional” singer shared his experience Monday during a phone interview with Erica Campbell on her nationally syndicated radio program, Get Up! Mornings.

Though some did disagree with the 33-year-old singer’s decision to go, Greene said, “I think a lot of them are just upset over social issues.”

He also asserted that critics would have a different viewpoint if they read and understood Scripture. “It’s very hard to read the Bible and not be convicted to be involved in culture rather than just to complain about it,” said the chart-topping musician.

Rooting his perspective in biblical wisdom, Greene explained, “Acts 17 talked about how Paul and his boys flipped the world upside down”—something that doesn’t “happen by staying in the comfort of our four walls of our church, and just praying for things to happen,” but rather, by “engaging in culture.”
