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.”

I’m from stoke, so I can’t talk, but still, a bit of elocution and annunciation will help with clarity,
(Annunciation can be thought of as speaking out clearly, exaggerating your mouth movements and things like that. I think it’s a good one.)
