EDITORS’ NOTES

Commanding vocal performances on a TV talent show cast the spotlight on this Pittsburg native — less than a year later, the precocious prodigy teams with GRAMMY® and Academy Award®-winning producer David Foster (Céline Dion, Michael Bublé). “When You Wish Upon a Star” is an apropos opener for an album titled Dream With Me. The 10-year-old’s magical rendition of the Disney original is soaring and startlingly composed. This 14-song collection also includes a recording of the Italian aria that helped Evancho gain acclaim (“Nessun Dorma”). Despite being tremendously capable of shining on her own, Dream With Me boasts two superstar duets. Barbra Streisand helps deliver a radiant performance of operatic and optimistic “Somewhere” (West Side Story), while Evancho is joined by fellow talent-show-phenom Susan Boyle for sentimental “A Mother’s Prayer.”

Dream With Me

jadloans

Truly an angel. Other than Michael Jackson at 11, probably the most talented I have ever heard in 50 years. Just beautiful and a sweet girl as it seems on PBS special. Will hopefully be around a long time.

Stunning Voice...

Especially for a girl so young.

Jackie Evancho ~ Dream With Me

eyecvideos

The princess from Pennsylvania continues to wow music lovers around the World with her stunningly amazing vocals. This new CD is even more than I anticipated. As I play each song I tell myself that that song is my favorite. But once I get to the next song that becomes my favorite. All the songs are done so well that they are all my favorite's. Can't wait to see Jackie get her first Grammy.

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
