    This White House under Trump will be filled with grace and loveliness from First Lady Melania on down… Evancho is just one example of the YUGE difference between the marxist who is on the way out and Trump.

    Only thing I didn’t like is the fact that Jackie hedged her answer:
    – she’s honored to perform for the office (may be suffering from TDS….)
    BUT
    – she was very happy to sing for Obama and he was very kind.

    I hope I’m reading too much into her answers.
    I really hope that the inauguration will be a YUGELY patriotic and classy event!

    Never heard of this woman before today.

    It is so cool that she’s 1) one of the winners of a talent show (ie. not a pedigreed “Star”) and 2) only 16 yo!

    What an honor to sing at the Inauguration, on top of singing with Andrea Bocelli.

    The Obama White House just uncovered evidence that America’s Got Talent was hacked by the evil Russians when Evancho won.

    Stein is filing for a recount but needs to raise 10 million dollars first.

    Trump should go old school and get the Pointer Sisters, featuring Bonnie. They have great Uplifting songs, conducive to a Victory Celebration for an Inauguration, as well as fitting to Trump message “Make American Great Again.

    Goes to show Trump is after all a classy guy. Most everyone writing here appreciates Trump’s sincerity so we’re not surprised at his choices, though I think that’s not what many skeptics are expecting.

    The above performance of “God Bless America” is excellent and interesting because the “preamble” part was included which is seldom done. It’s a great song, I remember from long ago when Kate Smith would perform it so convincingly. Smith’s original rendition is available on YouTube, worth comparing to Ms. Evancho’s version.

    The song’s author, Irving Berlin had an amazing life story, quite a patriot with a long and productive life. I think it’s good to remind ourselves about such wonderfully successful Americans, among them immigrants who loved this country and contributed so much to it.

      Thanks for your post. Berlin was indeed a patriot with an amazing life story — the story of an American immigrant who pursued the American Dream.

      President-Elect Trump will restore that American Dream to its rightful owners — the American people.

      Grew up hearing Kate Smith sing “God Bless America”. It truly was her signature song. Thanks for the suggestion of hearing and comparing both renditions.

        It was in the ’50s and I remember as a young kid watching tv and Kate Smith would sing God Bless America. Can’t quite remember what tv show it was. Maybe several different ones? Anyone remember? It was her signature song. It really moved me as a youngster to hear her.

    I hope to High Heaven she includes the fourth stanza in that vocal tribute.

    My father was a combat soldier in WWII, Pacific and Europe. He told me once about hearing “God Bless America” sung by Kate Smith over the Armed Forces Radio Network. He and the other men in his battery were tough guys (3rd Army – Patton). Yet that tune got to them in a way other music just didn’t. He said it was pretty hard to talk or even swallow while listening to that.

    The song also has a special meaning to me. On Corregidor Island in Manila Bay on January 1, 1942, one of the Coast Artillery Corps’ battery commanders called his men together for a little briefing on their situation (hopeless, certain death or captivity almost guaranteed to come). He did his best to lift their spirits. When it was over he and his men sang the national anthem, followed by “God Bless America.” The men did this, knowing that same America would have to temporarily abandon them, and they would face a vicious and very uncertain fight for survival in the very near future, and face it alone and without possibility of rescue, It is a marvelous tribute to these excellent men.

    I was helping a friend with their laptop today and had the displeasure of seeing an article posted on AoLOL. It said something about these talents were secured for the inauguration because ambassadorships were offered to the bookers.

    Of course, the sources for this article were unnamed and anonymous.

    The resentment and jealousy of these hack writers is pathetic, that they would take this special moment in the singer’s life and try to politicize it.

    Beautiful young lady and beautiful voice. What an amazing contrast to the ugliness of the left.

    “10 interesting facts about presidential inaugurations”

    Presidential partiers and party poopers:

    The first American president, George Washington, also held the first inaugural ball in 1789, but the tradition didn’t stick until the wife of James Madison hosted one in 1809 after a 20-year dry spell. Inaugural balls have been a main draw of the event since then, though there were some presidents who didn’t want to partake in the official partying.

    In 1853, Franklin Pierce became the first president to cancel the inaugural ball. He did so because he was mourning the recent death of his son.

    Woodrow Wilson canceled the ball in 1913 because “he felt the ball was too expensive and unnecessary for the solemn occasion of the Inaugural.” Warren Harding did the same in 1921 — a private party was held instead. Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt hosted “charity balls” in place of the official one, which was revived by Harry Truman in 1949.

    The late, great tenor, Luciano Pavarotti was a tenant of two Trump apartments. During campaign events Pavarotti’s famous recording of the popular aria “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s opera Turandot was played…and Mr. Trump often compared protesters with over-sized voices to the opera singer. The climactic ending words of the aria “all’alba vincero!” translate: “at dawn I shall win.” No guessing why our President elect would want Andrea Bocelli, a student of Luciano’s, to sing this aria at the inauguration…TRUMP WON! VINCERO!

    Not for nothing…
    So I watch the video of Jackie above. Great. Next up was her singing “The Little Drummer Boy” on the today show with Il Volo. Oh boy, I think, this is going to be great. Except when they get to the words “Baby Jesu, pa rum ba ba bum” they replace it with “Little Baby”.

    So a little later I’m watching the 1947 version of “The Bishop’s Wife” with Cary Grant and Loretta Young. At the end where the bishop is reading his sermon, right where you’d expect the script to mention Jesus by name, they make some kind of gauzy reference to tolerance as being the meaning of Christmas.

    I’m not imagining this: they – and you know who “they” are – will let us have a vague “season”, but they really, really, really hate the mention of the name Jesus, don’t they? That’s why they went after Mel Gibson so hard, because he put Jesus right up close and quoted the Gospels faithfully and it was like nails on a chalkboard to them.

    So take it upon yourself, Treepers: every and any time you get to say his name in conversation, no matter where you are or who you’re with, mention His name this Christmas season: Jesus Christ, Our Savior, is born!

  30. Jesus’s name is very powerful! I won’t give a Christmas card without the name of Jesus in it.
    That is sometimes hard to find. His name IS being band, just like Merry Christmas used to be.
    Time to break this PC barrier too!

    At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every toung shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
