Jackie Evancho is the star performer at Trump’s inauguration as she will be singing the national anthem. The 16-year-old “America’s Got Talent” star said, “I’m so excited. It’s going to be awesome.”
Evancho had the opportunity to meet the President-elect right when she was 10 years old at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
In 2010, Evancho sung for the first family at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at the Ellipse in front of the White House.
“I felt really honored to have the chance to perform for the president again,” Evancho said the added, “I kind of live in the moment. It doesn’t really register until years in the future.”
