The question of who would perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony in January may have finally been answered. America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho and Andrea Bocelli are reportedly on the bill.
Evancho will not only sing the National Anthem at Trump’s behest, but she will perform a duet with Bocelli. Evancho’s mother spoke with TMZ and shared that Trump personally called Evancho to ask her, and they sorted out all the details yesterday (December 13th).
In late November, a member of Trump’s transition team, Anthony Scaramucci, said Elton John would be performing at the inauguration, but John later denied it. In fact, Trump has been having difficulty securing musicians to participate at the January 20th event. Kanye West met with him in Manhattan yesterday to discuss a range of societal issues, but who’s to say Trump didn’t also slip in a surprise appearance request? If Yeezy ends up at Trump’s inauguration, we broke down the 10 songs he should consider performing.
