Rhode Island PBS in partnership with Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium is excited to announce that Jackie Evancho is returning to Providence this November, and we have great tickets available just for you!
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. The young soprano from Pittsburgh with the stunning voice won runner-up and launched her music career, signing with Columbia Records, shortly thereafter.
Since her appearance on the show that made her famous Jackie has been able to break through being typecast as “reality show singer” and has established herself as a legitimate force within the classical crossover genre. In the short time since gaining fame, Jackie’s unique, gorgeous, soprano voice has won her millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts.
Jackie’s last studio release was in July of 2014. “Awakening” was her third studio album and like her other albums before, “Awakening’s entered the Billboard Classical Chart at number one. She toured to promote the album thru 2015, and “Awakening” ended 2015 at the number 3 spot on Billboards Year End Classical Chart and Jackie was number 5 on Billboards classical album artists chart. Just Jared Jr. included Jackie on their Top 25 music acts of 2015. And in 2015, Jackie released her rendition of “Safe and Sound” from her favorite film, The Hunger Games to rave reviews. Also, in 2015, Jackie performed at her highest profile event to date: A performance for the Pope when he visited the US back in November. Her rendition of “When you Wish upon a Star” is a YouTube highlight.
2016 sees Jackie turning 16. She will release a number of singles and videos and eventually release her 4th studio album. She will continue to tour along with continuing her education.
And the journey continues……
