If you don’t watch America’s Got Talent during the summer months, perhaps you missed Jackie Evancho, the 10-year-old singing prodigy who came in second in 2010. She returned to the AGT stage during this year’s finals, taller, more polished, and yet still this charming young lady that amazes with her voice. When she first appeared on AGT last year, I remember thinking that it felt “fake.” You see this little girl mouthing the words, but the voice that comes out of her is so mature.
I recently bought her new album, Dream With Me, and it is fabulous. She has a couple of duets, one with Susan Boyle, the most famous Britain’s Got Talent winner, and the other with Barbra Streisand. Gorgeous! Songs on the album include a favorite from Les Misérables and another favorite from Phantom of the Opera. Gotta love those if you are a Broadway musical fan like me. But even the songs that were unfamiliar blew me away.
So treat yourself. Buy the album from your favorite source. You won’t be sorry.
