Suck it, haters.
From NY Daily News: Jackie Evancho — the virtually unknown 16-year-old singer slated to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20 — is laughing all the way to the bank as her recent album sales have skyrocketed since her performance was announced.
Trump detractors attacked the teenage classical singer earlier this month for agreeing to perform at the event, noting that it would ruin her career. However, it has done quite the opposite.
Evancho’s weekly album sales have quadrupled for both digital downloads and with retailers, according to TMZ. And her album “Someday at Christmas” reportedly had to be restocked twice in local stores, TMZ reported.
Even the soprano’s Billboard spot has jumped significantly. Evancho’s “Dream With Me” album and her “O Holy Night” EP are both at No. 2 on the Billboard charts — which is the highest spot they’ve ever held. She’s also the youngest solo artist to ever go platinum.
The “America’s Got Talent” breakout star will be singing the “The Star Spangled Banner” at next month’s presidential ceremony. “I’m so excited,” Evancho said on “Today” about the event. “It’s going to be awesome.”
