In 2010, when Jackie was ten years old, she astonished audiences around the world on NBC's "America's Got Talent." Jackie came in second place on the national contest, and since then, Jackie's career has flourished at a very rapid pace. She was named to Billboard's"21 Under 21" list, their annual ranking of the most powerful minors in the music industry. Billboard said her spectacular successes in 2010 and 2011 – including the blockbuster releases of her holiday EP O Holy Night and full-length album Dream With Me, and the artistic triumph of the Dream With Me special and live concert appearances – set her apart from other young performers.

When Jackie’s major label debut O Holy Night was released in November 2010, it became the year's #1 best-selling debut recording with sales exceeding one million. It rocketed into the Billboard 200 at #2, and the EP's chart and sales success secured Jackie's position as the year's top-selling debut artist as well as the youngest female solo artist to debut during the SoundScan era. In addition to its pop chart success, O Holy Night reached #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart and #2 on the Billboard Holiday Chart.

Dream With Me, released in June 2011, was Jackie’s first studio album and debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #2; it was certified Gold after only four weeks of release. Her follow-up holiday record, Heavenly Christmas, was among the top-selling holiday albums of 2011.

Jackie applies her brilliant voice and extraordinary artistry to an entirely new set of classics with the release of Songs From the Silver Screen, her newest collection for Columbia/Syco Records, on October 2, 2012.

For this album, Jackie collaborated with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Humberto Gatica, whose lengthy and impressive experience in the music industry has seen him work closely with Grammy award winning producer David Foster, as well as with superstars like Michael Bublé, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Barbra Streisand.

"No one can sing classical crossover music with the technical precision, emotion, and intelligence that Jackie brings to it," says Gatica. "With the songs we've selected for this album, we can show her fans how her talent has only deepened and matured sinceDream With Me, which I think was one of the most outstanding albums of 2011."

Jackie's beauty and poise have also led her in other directions besides music. She was selected by the GUESS Kids clothing line to be in all of their Fall 2012 print advertising. Famed film star/director Robert Redford also requested that Jackie play his daughter in the upcoming film "The Company You Keep."

"I am so happy that Mr. Redford picked me to be in his film. And I was excited to learn from performers that are amazing at what they do," says Jackie, who worked with a star-studded cast that included Susan Sarandon, Shia LaBeouf, Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick, Nick Nolte, and Stanley Tucci. The film will be released in 2013.
