TLC Presents Hour-Long Special GROWING UP EVANCHO, 8/9

Meet the Evanchos: a typical American family from Pittsburgh with some not-so-typical circumstances. Parents Lisa and Mike have four kids, Rachel, 13, Zach, 15 Jackie, 17 and Juliet, 19. Perhaps the most famous is Jackie, who at 10 years old dazzled American television audiences and gained global recognition with her stunning debut on America's Got Talent. Since then, Jackie has become the youngest solo platinum artist in history, with sales of over 2.5 million albums in the U.S alone. Her numerous accolades include six consecutive number one albums on the Billboard Classical charts, and performances for numerous dignitaries around the world including President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama (twice), the Pope and the Imperial family of Japan. She has sung alongside renowned artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennett. Fast forward seven years later, Jackie faced the wrath of a DIVIDED nation as she sang the national anthem at President Trump's inauguration, receiving both criticism and PRAISE from her fans. Get a glimpse into the life of Jackie Evancho and her family in the hour-long special GROWING UP EVANCHO on Wednesday, August 9 at 10/9c on TLC.

Jackie, now 17 and an established vocal powerhouse, is broadening her range and also working in the pop and Broadway genres. She released her first pop songs and her eighth studio album, Two Hearts. Meanwhile, Jackie's older sister Juliet, 19 and transgender, is hoping to pursue her dream to be a model and continue as an LGBTQ activist. The sisters are at a crossroads individually and within themselves. Both girls utilize their platforms to speak out against Trump's rollback of transgender rights while still trying to maintain a balance within their careers and family life.

GROWING UP EVANCHO is produced by Studio Lambert for TLC. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #Evanchos. Throughout the special, get videos and other content on TLC.com/GrowingUpEvancho
