The young soprano from Pittsburgh with the stunning voice won runner-up during America's Got Talent by dazzling the judges and millions of viewers with her beautiful, soprano voice. Evancho launched her soon-to-be legendary career, signing with Columbia Records shortly thereafter.
In a little over two years, Jackie's unique voice has attracted millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts. Now 13, Jackie has garnered the support of legendary music producers like David Foster and filmmakers such as Robert Redford. Billboard Magazine named Jackie to their list of music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21 in 2011 and again in 2012 because the soprano's "spellbinding, operatic vocals possess a power and poignancy that often moves listeners multiple times her age to tears."
Jackie's debut EP, O Holy Night, was released in November 2010 and became the year's number one bestselling debut recording with sales exceeding one million copies and earning her a platinum certification. In June 2011, Jackie released her first studio album, Dream With Me. A mix of operatic arias, show tunes and pop standards, it debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at number two and was certified Gold after only four weeks of release. Heavenly Christmas, was released in November 2011 and became one of the top-selling holiday albums of the year.
Her U.S. shows are also sell-outs and have been taped for broadcast on PBS for the Great Performances series. Jackie's first PBS special was one of the top pledge producing performances in PBS' history. When PBS aired "Dream With Me In Concert" during the latter half of 2011, it instantly became one of their most broadcast programs of the year and was used extensively during pledge drives.
