WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- PSY performed at the 31st annual "Christmas in Washington" event, days after apologizing for singing a song in 2004 calling for the deaths of U.S. soldiers.

The Korean rapper, best known for his pop song "Gangnam Style," made headlines last week after "Dear America," an old song he sang urging violence toward members of the U.S. military and their families, hit the Web.

The singer apologized for the song, explaining it was an emotional reaction after two Korean girls were killed by a U.S. military vehicle, but many detractors said he should have been taken off the bill for the "Christmas in Washington" concert.

He performed at Sunday night's show as scheduled, alongside Diana Ross, Demi Lovato, Megan Hilty, Chris Mann and Scotty McCreery, USA Today reported.

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were in attendance. Conan O'Brien served as host.
