The Smith Center for the Performing Arts will host singing sensation Jackie Evancho's first headlining show in Las Vegas, presented in association with Danny Zelisko, on Saturday, April 13 inside Reynolds Hall.
Jackie Evancho debuted on The National stage on NBC's "America's Got Talent" and has since risen to an international classical crossover star. Evancho's current album, "Songs From The Silver Screen," out now on Syco/Columbia Records, debuted at number one on the Billboard Classical charts and number seven on the Billboard Top 200. At just 12 years old, Evancho was named to Billboard Magazine's "21 Under 21" list for a second consecutive year in 2012. In March, Evancho will make her feature film debut in Robert Redford's upcoming film, "The Company You Keep," Starring as Redford's Daughter alongside Susan Sarandon and Shia Labeouf.
With sell-out U.S. shows and a remarkable taped-for-broadcast special on PBS for the "Great Performances" series, Evancho's first PBS special, 2011's "Dream With Me In Concert," was one of the top pledge producing performances in PBS history. Following the success of her first PBS show, "Jackie Evancho: Music of the Movies" debuted in 2012 featuring classic songs from "South Pacific, "Cinema Paridiso" and the timeless hit "My Heart Will Go On" from "Titanic."
In two years, Evancho's unique soprano has won her millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts. Her warmth, charm and poise have helped her gain the support of legendary producers like David Foster, filmmakers like Robert Redford and the entire music industry.
