EDITORS’ NOTES

This young soprano proves her interest in the core repertoire by turning in committed performances of Rachmaninov’s “Vocalise” and Caccini’s “Ave Maria.” But like her equally innovative peers in the classical crossover scene, Evancho reaches far and wide to find ways to connect with audiences: She gives us a solemn rendition of “The Rains of Castamere” (famous from HBO’s Game of Thrones), as well as winning versions of familiar tunes from the likes of U2 (“With or Without You”) and Ennio Morricone (“Your Love”).

So Far, So Good

Pinto11,

Even though the full album has not been released, Ms. Evancho is definitely working on creating a beautiful tone for her voice. From the opening sample of “Think of Me,” I’m confident saying that this could be a breakthrough album for her. Her rendition of the highlight aria from “Phantom” is brilliant, and showcases her depth and range, granted that the clip only showcases the middle section of the song. Many who know the song will await to hear the light, airy, staccato segment of the piece before the grand finale. Ms. Evancho’s smooth, effortless quality has definitely been sharpened, and helped her voice grow into something that I feared would be too young and popularized. I was not a huge fan of her first album, having listened to it, and it seeming forced and rushed for the classics. In her cover of “The Rains of Castamere,” we hear a darker, ghostly quality of her voice, which provides even more depth to her voice, and what future works lie ahead of her. I see Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise Op. 34” is in the line up, which is a huge song. Having heard other versions of this aforementioned piece, I have good faith that Jackie has the depth and appropriate range for the song, to help pull it off successfully. I hope the rest of her upcoming album is as good as the first two clips of “Think of Me” and “Rains of Castamere” have been.

LOVE IT & LOVE YOU

About Jackie Evancho

A gifted soprano singer who appeared on the fifth season of America's Got Talent, Jackie Evancho is best known for her work in the classical crossover genre. Like Hayley Westenra and Charlotte Church before her, Evancho's vocal talents were evident from a young age. A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, Evancho (who also plays violin and piano) began taking vocal lessons in 2008 at the age of eight. By 2010, she had already breezed through a local singing contest; started her own YouTube channel; released her independent debut album, Prelude to a Dream; and held the record as the world's youngest opera singer.

It was on the heels of such achievements that Evancho won a spot on the fifth season of NBC's America's Got Talent. While on the show, the then-ten-year-old wowed audiences and judges alike with a technical skill, lyricism, and stage presence that belied her age. Ultimately, however, she finished in second place behind Michael Grimm. Following her run on America's Got Talent, Evancho released the holiday EP/DVD O Holy Night via Columbia Records.

In spring 2011, Evancho delivered Dream with Me, her full-length (non-seasonal) debut, which was produced by David Foster and featured a mix of arias, show tunes, and pop classics. Jackie Evancho: Dream with Me in Concert, a live performance of the songs that first captured the hearts of her audiences, along with new classical crossover selections, followed that fall. Released just a few months after Dream with Me, the ten-track Heavenly Christmas revisited the Yuletide splendor of 2009's O Holy Night.

In 2012, Evancho returned with Songs from the Silver Screen, featuring her renditions of classic movie themes. Her fifth full-length album, 2014's Awakening, was preceded by the singles "Think of Me" and "The Rains of Castamer," the former from Phantom of the Opera and the latter a take on the brooding Game of Thrones ballad. The LP debuted at number 17 on the Billboard 200 chart and number one on the Billboard Classical Albums chart. In 2016, Evancho released her second collection of holiday music, Someday at Christmas. Arriving in the spring of 2017, her next album, Two Hearts, consisted of two discs. The first included ten classical crossover tracks of the type she'd become known for, while the second disc was in the form of a five-song EP of more pop-oriented originals, four of which were co-written by Evancho. ~ James Christopher Monger & Matt Collar
