Gifted with a voice that is elegant and inspiring beyond her years, Jackie Evancho graces the Fox stage this holiday season. With spellbinding artistry, power and poignancy, Miss Evancho sings her unique blend of classical crossover music from her newest release “The Awakening.” Jackie’s uncanny ability to engage her audience with spirited energy and her gregarious sincerity will make this an unforgettable evening at The Fox!
It was Jackie Evancho’s love of the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” that stirred the passion within her to begin singing and posting videos to YouTube. Not long after gaining a degree of notoriety for those videos Jackie decided to submit her rendition of “Panis Angelicus” to a special YouTube episode during the 5th season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” variety show. The response was overwhelming and earned her the opportunity to perform in front of the judges on live television.
Jackie’s first performance on America’s Got Talent left audiences and judges astonished that such a perfect, beautiful, soprano voice could come from a 10 year-old girl. During her next appearance in the competition, judges asked Jackie to improvise a tune which she performed flawlessly. It wasn’t just her musical gift and her age that floored the “America’s Got Talent” audience, but Jackie’s presence, poise and charm that truly made them take notice. One of the show’s judges, Piers Morgan, explained, “You’ve got the whole package.”’
