Jackie Evancho: Who is Donald Trump's Inauguration Singer?

by at .

There are very few celebrities out there who support Donald Trump.

And there are even fewer celebrities out there in the music industry who support Donald Trump.

This is why the President-Elect has had trouble finding anyone on the A (or B... or C...) List to perform at his inauguration on January 20, 2017.

In the end, Trump's team settled on Jackie Evancho to sing the national anthem at this historic event.

The decision has led to at least one widespread question around the Internet: WHO IS JACKIE EVANCHO?
