In our final installment of ‘Hanging Out With Jackie Evancho,’ we go behind the scenes of the classical crossover artist’s ‘Awakening’ album photo shoot.

“I like showing off my glamorous side,” the 14-year-old prodigy announces as she poses in various angelic dresses. While she previously revealed that she does her own hair and makeup before most of her concerts, “I enjoy having my makeup and hair and done by professionals for a photo shoot,” she reveals in the video above. Who doesn’t love to get pampered once in a while?

And Jackie never felt more glamorous than during her photo shoot for her album ‘Awakening.’

“My album shoot was especially fun ’cause we were creating images in magical worlds to reflect the music,” she excitedly reveals. Considering she looks as stunning as her music, we’d say it was an epic success.

Jackie Evancho Talks Singing Practice [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO] by Ali Szubiak November 25, 2014 5:34 PM

Our favorite young classical-crossover singer, Jackie Evancho, is back with another video where she shares more of her favorite things. This time she talks about something we’ve really been dying to get more information on — her singing!

That’s right, this video is all about Jackie’s typical practice sessions and how long she spends perfecting her impeccable vocals. When we found out just how much she practices, we were surprised: “I typically practice singing for one hour and I know that I should practice more but it’s usually once a week.” What?! How is it even possible to be that good with that little practice!? We’re totally jealous.

She then goes on to talk about how important feedback about her singing is, and that her mom is the perfect critic: “I look to my mom to give me honest feedback on areas I can sharpen.”

Jackie ends the video with some great advice for anyone who wants to make a career out of singing, or anything, really. “Practicing is important in order to be the best at what you do and as they say, practice makes perfect.” Sounds about right!

Jackie Evancho via PopCrush 'Jackie Evancho Dishes on Hair and Makeup [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]'

In our latest installment of ‘Hanging Out With Jackie Evancho,’ the classical-crossover prodigy is dishing on her hair, makeup and beauty routine! Best thing ever? She just learned how to do a fishtail braid!

The 14-year-old singer may boast a voice and a talent way beyond her years, but in many ways, Jackie Evancho is just like your typical teen — lip gloss, YouTube tutorials and all.

“I never leave the house without pink lip gloss and Chapstick,” Jackie reveals in the video above. She may have recently learned to do a fishtail braid (and admits that she learns new styles from mags and YouTube vids), but unfortunately her little sister won’t let her do her hair. Boo! But it’s OK, because Jackie has plenty of practice on her own — especially because most of the time, she’ll do her own hair and makeup for shows. Pretty cool!

Jackie Evancho talks about her Pets

We’ve already heard a few interesting things about Jackie Evancho, the crazy talented 14-year-old classical-crossover singer. Now we get to hear all about another one of her favorite things: Her pets!

The video shows Jackie playing with one of her dogs, and she goes on to name just how many pets she has, explaining, “My best friends are my pets. We have four dogs, one snake and one frog as part of the family.”

She goes on to talk about why she loves dogs, in particular, so much, saying: “Dogs are such sweet creatures with good souls and hearts. My favorite thing to do is snuggle with Maggie.”

Jackie’s even gone that extra mile to try and help out animals, by volunteering her time to charity. She says, “I’ve done charity work for Mission: Humane and hope to get more involved in the future by doing more charity work.”

Jackie Evancho on her Journal Writing

Considering how creative Jackie Evancho is, we’re not surprised to discover that one of her favorite activities is writing!

In the video above, we see the immensely talented, 14-year-old classical-crossover singer writing down her thoughts in a journal. She talks about her writing efforts, which include a few different types of writing, saying: “When I’m in a reflective mood I write in my journal. It’s usually whatever pops into my head. Sometimes it’s lyrics and poetry and writing helps me focus and express my feelings.”

Jackie goes on to talk about the different places that inspire her to write, saying: “I also write when I’m on vacation or in a new place.” We totally feel the same way about words and how inspiring they can be (seriously — how else do you think we express the way we feel about One Direction?), so we know exactly where Jackie’s coming from.
