Jackie Evancho is defying what seems to be conventional entertainment wisdom — that singing at Donald Trump‘s inauguration is career-threatening — because she just shot to #1 on the charts.
Jackie’s album jumped to #1 on the Billboard Classical Albums chart.
Teenage opera prodigy Jackie Evancho has seen sales of her recorded music shoot up since it was confirmed the singer will perform the National Anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington, DC on January 20.
Evancho’s 2011 “Dream With Me” album and her 2010 “O Holy Night” offering are both sitting at No. 2 on the Billboard charts.
The former America’s Got Talent star’s weekly album sales have quadrupled, according to TMZ.
Evancho said she’s “excited” to sing at the prestigious event.
“I have recently been asked by the President-elect to perform the National Anthem for the swearing-in ceremony at the inauguration,” Evancho said earlier this month during an interview on Today. “I’m so excited. It’s going to be awesome.”
It turns out that she met Trump before.
Here’s a picture of her with Trump when she was a young girl:
Can’t wait to see her perform!
