I thought this was interesting, it’s from “The Huffington Post”.
Donald Trump Makes Dubious Claim About Inauguration Singer Jackie Evancho
Here is part of that article:
“Only Trump’s claims that Evancho’s “album sales have skyrocketed after announcing her inauguration performance” are being called into question. Especially in cause and effect.
Vanity Fair noted that the 16-year-old Evancho’s latest offering is a Christmas album, so it stands to reason that sales would increase as the holiday approached.
In terms of numbers, Billboard offered interesting tidbits. The music trade outlet acknowledged that sales of Evancho’s “Someday At Christmas” did rise after the Dec. 14 announcement that she would sing the national anthem at the inauguration ― but “skyrocket” might be pushing it.”

Forget the politics…Another article says the shelves had to be stocked twice with her album. Several of us were watching when Jackie made the announcement on the Today Show that day. Humm….I wonder if there might have been another reason for her rise in sales the day she sang with IL Volo?
