Trump tweeted Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017, that the album sales of teenage classical singer Jackie Evancho have “skyrocketed” since he announced she would perform at his Inauguration. While some of the credit may be due to Trump’s announcement, Evancho’s sales could simply be a result of the holidays: She released a new album, “Someday at Christmas,” on Oct. 28, and she has other holiday albums in her catalog. The singer’s album sales could have also seen a boost thanks to her performance on “America’s Got Talent: Holiday Spectacular,” which aired on NBC on Dec. 19. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
