Pittsburgh Native to Perform National Anthem at Trump Inauguration (VIDEO)

Donald Trump will be the first reality show President so it’s only fitting that his inauguration will feature a reality show contestant.

Jackie Evancho, a Pittsburgh native, announced on the Today Show that she’ll be performing the national anthem on January 20th.

As Maria Sciullo of the Post-Gazette points out, Trump first met the sixteen year-old back in 2010 after she finished in second place on America’s Got Talent.

Last week, Itay Hod of The Wrap reported that the Trump team was so desperate for high-profile stars to sing at the event that they were offering seven-figure paydays and even appointments.

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli eventually agreed.
