‘America’s Got Talent’ star will sing at Trump inauguration

WASHINGTON — “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho will sing the national anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 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.

In 2010, she was the runner-up on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
