SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will once again sing at a U.S. presidential inauguration come January.

The Deseret News reports that the choir announced Thursday that it will be performing at President-elect Donald Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration. The choir will perform with the Marine Corps Band as Trump is sworn in.

This will be the choir’s sixth appearance at a presidential inauguration in the last 50 years.

The choir is composed of 360 volunteers who serve as ambassadors for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its name comes from the historic Mormon Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

The Tabernacle Choir will be joined at the inauguration by 16-year-old singer Jackie Evancho, a winner of “America’s Got Talent,” who will perform the national anthem.
