After all of the commotion surrounding Donald Trump's inauguration performers, Jackie Evancho delivered the national anthem at the conclusion of his swearing-in ceremony on Friday (Jan. 20).

Despite how controversial the decision to perform at Trump's inauguration was, Evancho stressed in an interview that it wasn't political or pro-Trump in any way. "I just kind of thought that this is for my country," she told the New York Times. "So if people are going to hate on me it's for the wrong reason."
