Jackie Evancho has an impressive resume for only being 16 years old. Now, the teen singing phenom famous for being runner-up on “America’s Got Talent” has accepted an invitation to sing for President-elect Donald Trump.
The announcement came on Wednesday morning while she was on the “Today” show. She told the co-hosts:
“I feel really honored. To be able to sing for the office — it’s a great honor for me.”
While Jackie may feel it’s an “honor,” not everyone seems to agree with her.
After the announcement of her upcoming performance, she became the target of political attacks.
In an interview with People Now, the young singer described another reason her family has seen a lot of hate. She said:
“My family is kind of a big target. I have a transgender sister and so a lot of hate goes towards us.”
