Sixteen-year-old singer, Jackie Evancho, has soared to the top of the charts following news she will sing the National Anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The runner-up on 2010’s America’s Got Talent saw sales of her albums skyrocket after the news was announced, landing her at number 1 on Billboard’s Classical charts with her album “Someday at Christmas.”
According to TMZ the young star saw her weekly album sales “quadruple” in retail sales and digital downloads since the announcement was made on the Today Show earlier this month.
