Jackie Evancho`s Upcoming PBS Special Music of the Movies

Jackie Evancho To Record PBS Special for GREAT PERFORMANCES
Twelve-year-old classical crossover prodigy Jackie Evancho will record a new GREAT PERFORMANCES special in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theater on June 13.  Jackie Evancho: Music of the Movies will feature Jackie singing arrangements of favorite songs from the movies (the full set list is below.)  Jackie will release an album of movie songs this fall.
Jackie Evancho got her big break at just 10 years old as a contestant on America’s Got Talent, where the break out star finished in second place.  Her first release for Columbia Records, a Christmas EP titled O Holy Night, was certified Platinum and earned  Jackie the distinction of being the top-selling debut artist in 2010 as well as the youngest solo artist ever to go platinum and debut in the Top 10.  In 2011 she released Dream With Me, her debut major label full-length.  Dream With Me was produced by the legendary David Foster, and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and is certified Gold.  She recorded Dream With Me In Concert for GREAT PERFORMANCES in 2011, and the special rapidly became one of PBS’ most broadcast programs of the year.
