Teenage opera prodigy Jackie Evancho, America’s Got Talent runner-up in 2010, got a huge surprise after she confirmed she will sing the National Anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
The 16-year-old Evancho said Wednesday on NBC’s “Today,” ”I’m so excited. It’s going to be awesome.”
Trump’s communications director for the inaugural committee confirmed the booking on Twitter, calling Evancho “an inspiration for all Americans.”
Beyonce performed the national anthem at President Barack Obama’s January 2013 inauguration. She later said she’d lip synced the song.
Evancho is a Pittsburgh native and a soprano who has performed in Washington before. She has performed at the Independence Day concert “A Capitol Fourth” along with the lighting of the national Christmas tree and the National Prayer Breakfast.
Her album sales took off. Evancho’s 2011 “Dream With Me” album and her 2010 “O Holy Night” both shot up to number 1 and now both sit at No. 2 on the Billboard charts.
Now remember out in Hollywood they are saying if you perform for Trump your career will be over. The liberals are putting tremendous pressure on their buddies in the entertainment world to boycott Trump.
It hasn’t worked. In fact just the opposite. Evancho went from a little-known artist to number 1 because she had the courage to support Trump. That’s the reality the liberals are trying to hide from the public.
Support for Trump = success. Support for Hillary = failure. Simple.
“I have recently been asked by the President-elect to perform the National Anthem for the swearing-in ceremony at the inauguration.”
“I’m so excited. It’s going to be awesome.”
Here’s a little taste of what expect on Jan 20th.
