1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

People look at Jackie and see a young person. But she is gifted WAY beyond her years. David Foster said that in all his years of music (45) he has never seen anything like Jackie Evancho. Give her a listen------she will blow you away!

She has an understanding of how to convey emotion that is so new and unique that many don't appreciate that they are hearing something groundbreaking.
That will change in time.

Many folks regard Jackie as a "child star" but she is now 16 years old. She has already accomplished a lot in the five years since she debuted on America's Got Talent. But the best is yet to come, starting with a new album in 2017. - BobG
