In the decade since Evancho first dazzled American television audiences on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” with her breathtaking voice and her fearless delivery, she has gained global recognition as one of the greatest vocal talents in the world today with comparisons to an emerging Barbra Streisand.
Evancho has released a string of Platinum and Gold albums, with sales of more than 3 million in the U.S., alone. She has also made history as the youngest, solo Platinum artist in the U.S.; the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K.; and the youngest person to give a solo concert at Lincoln Center.
All seven of Evancho’s albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. The magnitude of her success led Billboard to include Jackie on its list of “Music Movers-and-Shakers Under the Age of 21” twice in 2010 and 2012.
She headlined three PBS television specials, appeared in the film “The Company We Keep” at the request of her co-star Robert Redford, and toured the world, singing for Presidents, Pope Francis I, Japan’s Royal Family, and Oprah Winfrey. In addition to her solo success, Evancho has recorded duets with such notable artists as Tony Bennett, Plácido Domingo, Streisand, Chris Botti, and Joshua Bell.
In 2019, the world saw the emergence of a grown-up Evancho starting with her much-anticipated return to "AGT-The Champions," where she stunned the audience with her rendition of Leonard Bernstein’s “Somewhere.” She also released The Debut, matching her extraordinary voice with one of the most exciting re-emerging genres in popular music today: Broadway’s New American Songbook. And earlier this year, Evancho appeared on the hit FOX series “The Masked Singer,” where she impressed the judges and delighted fans with performances from a variety of genres.
Her expanding repertoire, and collaborations with artists and writers, have inspired a new generation of fans eager for more. And at 22, Evancho is in a unique position to bring her vast experience and young woman’s perspective to her debut at Melody Place. She has moved past the exuberant promise of a child prodigy, becoming a young adult with a clear vision of the path she wants to take as a performer.
