After Evancho’s inauguration performance was announced in December, the star — who previously performed for President Obama — opened up to PEOPLE about the hate she and her family received online.
“My family is kind of a big target. I have a transgender sister, and so a lot of hate goes towards us,” he said at the time. “I also get a lot of love. We pay most attention to that. Sometimes we get really annoyed with the hate — everyone does, we have to admit it. But we just ignore it.”
