Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho ( born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three ''Billboard'' 200 top 10 debuts. Between 2008 and 2010, Evancho entered several talent competitions; made singing appearances, mostly in Pennsylvania (including at a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game); issued an independent album, ''Prelude to a Dream''; and attracted interest on YouTube. Evancho impressed composers Tim Janis and David Foster, each of whom included her in his concerts beginning in 2009. Later in 2010, at the age of ten, she gained wider popularity with her performances in the fifth season of the ''America's Got Talent'' competition, finishing in second place. With the 2010 holiday release of her ''O Holy Night'' EP, Evancho became the best-selling debut artist of 2010, the youngest top-10 debut artist in U.S. history and the youngest solo artist ever to go platinum. She first performed in front of U.S. President Barack Obama at the 2010 National Christmas Tree lighting in Washington, D.C. In June 2011, her first full-length major-label album, ''Dream With Me'', produced by David Foster, debuted at No. 2 on the ''Billboard'' 200 chart, and she became the youngest top-5 debut artist in UK history. ''Billboard'' ranked Evancho the top Classical Albums Artist for 2011. Evancho released another studio album, ''Heavenly Christmas'', in November 2011. The same month, she became the youngest person ever to give a solo concert at Lincoln Center in New York City as part of her Dream With Me Tour. She has made two solo Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) specials for the television series ''Great Performances''. Evancho is the ambassador for Mission: Humane, a U.S. Humane Society program that encourages children to help protect animals. A national cotillion organization listed her as one of the "ten best-mannered people of 2011". In 2012 and 2013, she is touring the U.S., performing songs from her fourth full-length album, ''Songs from the Silver Screen'', released in October 2012, which was Evancho's third top-ten album debut.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
