annunciate instead of enunciate

Found here ( … phtml#more) after the second photo.

I assume the sentence should read, “She joked with the crowd on her song about fake tans, instructing them how to properly enunciate Orange.” Annunciate means “announce” or “proclaim,” and makes me think of Rennaisance oil paintings with the Virgin Mary. But speaking loudly and with clear articulation, “enunciation,” can be considered a characteristic of “annunciation.”
