“America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho will sing the national anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony in January.
The 16-year-old told NBC’s “Today” that she’s excited, and “it’s going to be awesome.”
Her website says the Pittsburgh native is a soprano who has performed at the National Prayer Breakfast and the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in Washington.
Her Facebook page includes a photo of her with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn tweeted a confirmation of Evancho’s booking, calling her “an inspiration for all Americans.”
