AVOCA, LUZERNE COUNTY- WHLM News Partner WYOU. Thursday President Donald Trump comes to northeastern Pennsylvania for a campaign rally for congressman Lou Barletta's run for the senate.
But, a local singer is getting a huge opportunity. Alicia Savinelli from Avoca will be singing the national anthem for the president and those in attendance at Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday. Savinelli says she got a phone call last week to sing.
Along with singing at the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders and bars she has also tried out for NBC's show The Voice. While she didn't make it onto the show because judges filled their spots, she says this is her biggest performance of her life.
"I was just like 'oh my god' I am singing for the President. He is going to hear my voice. It's insane and I am completely honored," said Savinelli.
Alicia is looking to audition for other competition shows in the future. For now, work on nailing Thursday's performance.
