In a statement on Berlin`s Facebook page, the 51-year-old musician said: “I am truly sorry I performed at Mar-a-Lago and would not have done so if I’d known what I learned while I was there. My goal in performing was not to support a political party. I see now that that’s not the way it appeared and I am apologetic for that as well.

“The contract stated it was a small Covid-safe event for the members of Mar-a-Lago. Unfortunately, it was not Covid-safe anywhere in Florida. I had no idea masks and social distancing were not required,” she continued.

“I thought I was current on all Covid news everywhere, but clearly I was not. I was shocked by Florida and Mar-a-Lago’s lack of regard for the pandemic and if I’d known I would never have gone. Once I fulfilled my contractual obligation, I left the event as quickly as I could. It is a mistake I regret. I took a Covid 19 test yesterday and tested negative.”
