Product Description

Jackie Evancho dazzled American television audiences at age ten gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Since then, she has released a string of albums, with sales of over 2.5 million in the U.S., acted in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep alongside Susan Sarandon and performed for President and Mrs. Obama at the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington D.C. Her broad successes led Billboard Magazine to include Jackie on their list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21” in 2011 and again in 2012.
 
ABOUT THE ARTIST
 
It was Jackie Evancho’s love of the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” that stirred the passion within her to begin singing and posting videos to YouTube. Not long after gaining a degree of notoriety for those videos, Jackie decided to submit her rendition of “Panis Angelicus” to a special YouTube episode during the 5th season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” variety show. The response was overwhelming and earned her the opportunity to perform in front of the judges on live television. Jackie was 10 years old.
Jackie’s first performance on America’s Got Talent left audiences and judges astonished that such a perfect, beautiful, soprano voice could come from a 10 year-old girl. During her next appearance in the competition, judges asked Jackie to improvise a tune which she performed flawlessly. It wasn’t just her musical gift and her age that floored the “America’s Got Talent” audience, but Jackie’s presence, poise and charm that truly made them take notice. One of the show’s judges, Piers Morgan, explained, “You’ve got the whole package.” The young soprano from Pittsburgh with the stunning voice won runner-up and launched her music career, signing with Columbia Records, shortly thereafter. Since her appearance on the show that made her famous Jackie has been able to break through being typecast as “reality show singer” and has established herself as a legitimate force within the classical crossover genre. In the short time since gaining fame, Jackie’s unique, gorgeous, soprano voice has won her millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts.
“She is a prodigy; they break the rules by definition,” wrote music critic Andrew Duckenbrod in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after seeing a then- 11 year old perform to a sold-out crowd in her hometown in October, 2011. “[Her] voice mesmerises. She has become one of the performers who have been defining the “crossover classic” category of singers – those who are equally comfortable with Puccini or pop.”
