Jackie Evancho broke from the pack and agreed to sing the national anthem for Donald Trump’s inauguration is laughing all the way to the bank after sales of her latest album quadrupled and record stores had to restock twice to keep up with demand. Enancho’s album is now Number One on the #1 on Billboard’s Classical Albums chart. Let that be a lesson to all of those losers who turned him down for political reasons.
It was first rumored that Elton John would perform, but that was quickly denied. Then Italian singer Andrea Bocelli backed out after receiving too much pressure from fans. Many others, including KISS, Celine Dion, and Justin Timberlake have declined performing for Trump, as well.
But Jackie Evancho, a runner-up on the show “America’s Got Talent,” put all politics aside and says she will perform the national anthem at the celebration, despite other A-lister’s objections.
The 16-year-old has been a prolific singer and entertainer ever since she was a child. At age 10, she appeared on “America’s Got Talent,” but since 2009, she’s released six studio albums, three live albums, one EP, and 31 singles, according to Cosmopolitan.
