Watch: Meet the Teen 'America's Got Talent' Star Who Will Sing National Anthem at Trump's Inauguration

And what Twitter thinks this will do to her career.

Published December 14, 2016

  1. On Wednesday, Donald Trump's inauguration team announced that Jackie Evancho will sing the national anthem at the President-elect's inauguration
  2. If that name doesn't ring a bell, it's because you weren't watching the 5th season of 'America's Got Talent,' where Jackie was the runner-up at only 10 years old
  3. Now the 16-year-old, opera-trained singer will be taking her talents to D.C. and she told the Today Show that she is 'so excited'
  4. In 2011, the talent competition alum met Donald Trump at his Mar-A-Lago resort
  5. Upon hearing the news, many people have come forward to congratulate Jackie on this momentous opportunity
  6. Whereas some could not help but make a joke about the selection
  7. And some Twitter users even caution the singer about aligning herself with such a controversial political figure
  8. However, at 16, which is too young to vote, chances are the classical singer is using this as an opportunity to further her career and her name (and based on her Twitter mentions, it's working)
