Singing the National Anthem at any event is an honor and none so more than being asked to do so for the inauguration of a president. When your 16 years old, this is impressive.
Jackie Evancho will have that honor and she is excited. This isn’t Evancho’s first major presidential event, as she has also sang for President Obama. “I got to meet Obama and he is really nice,” said Evancho. “It was quite an honor.” The last singer to perform the National Anthem, was Beyonce Knowles, during President Obama’s inauguration in 2013.
Despite this, many liberals are attacking her for accepting the invitation to sing:
“It’s very disappointing that you’re willing to support the Trump administration @jackieevancho This may taint you for years to come!”
“Nothing says losing the popular vote like having Jackie Evancho, America’s Got Talent 5th Season “Runner Up” singing at your inauguration.”
A few kind commenters looked at the big picture and were in full support of the girl’s decision…
“Please please please don’t attack this very young girl for taking an opportunity of a lifetime. I don’t like Trump AT ALL either but this girl is a KID and is probably more excited just to preform in front of such a big audience than she is to be doing it for Trump. Either way, please don’t send her death threats or say horrible nasty things, she’s sixteen for god sakes.”
