Come see the young sensation, Jackie Evancho, at the Pikes Peak Center!
A worldwide sensation when she was only ten years old, Jackie Evancho has moved past the exuberant promise of a child prodigy vocalist, becoming a mature young adult with a clear direction as to where she, as a creative artist, is taking her career as a singer.
A career that began with a little girl’s fascination with the film soundtrack of The Phantom of the Opera has become an evolving and enduring musical phenomenon.
Since she first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 – gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent – Jackie Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of more than 3 million in the U.S.
Along the way, she has also made history as the youngest solo platinum artist, the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K., the youngest person to give a solo concert at Lincoln Center, and the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010.
All seven of Jackie’s albums have hit Number 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. The magnitude of her success led Billboard twice (in 2010 and 2012) to include Jackie on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21.”
Jackie Evancho’s meteoric rise is already a show business legend. YouTube video stardom led to her spectacular, against-the-odds appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2010 that delivered the heat and the promise of a new star.
Her breakthrough was transformed quickly into the basis for a serious career. In addition to her solo success, Jackie has recorded duets with such notable artists as Tony Bennett, Plácido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Chris Botti, and Joshua Bell.
