The 16-year-old soprano with the pretty face and sweet, pitch-perfect voice with the phrasing of a much older singer, is what they call a classical crossover. She sings opera (performing with tenor Placido Domingo) and show tunes (dueting with Barbra Streisand) and solos pop tunes such as The Rains of Castamere (from the Game of Thrones). She’ll be singing the National Anthem for Trump’s inauguration, unfazed by the leftist bashing she’s gotten since agreeing to. Since her audience is mainly adults who prefer traditional music, and probably voted for Trump as well, her album sales have shot through the roof.
