Army band member stands in for Trump at inaugural rehearsal

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is set to take the oath of office Friday, but on Sunday, an Army band member is standing in for the soon-to-be 45th president during an inauguration dress rehearsal at the Capitol.

Band vocalist Greg Lowery -- a 54-year-old sergeant major -- says his role is to "look the part as much as possible," and he says he bought a red tie for his assignment.

\Another band member, Sara Corry, is standing in for Melania Trump, a native of Slovenia. The Army specialist is from Capistrano Beach, California.

The goal of the rehearsal is to practice events so everything goes off as flawlessly -- and on time -- as possible for the real thing.
