Adding to the exciting news about Jackie's upcoming performance in Boston is this: Jackie Evancho, the young soprano from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who was runner-up on the fifth season of “America’s Got Talent” just performed for Pope Francis at the World Meeting of Families.

Platinum-selling,15-year-old vocal sensation Jackie Evancho released Awakening on September 23, 2014 coinciding with her year-long international tour which stops in Boston on October 23, 2015. Produced by Nick Patrick, Awakening is Evancho’s first album under her recent worldwide recording agreement with Sony Music Masterworks imprint Portrait. In sync with the new CD, she filmed a PBS Special which aired on in Boston on WGBH TV in December, 2014 and again this past August.

Awakening signaled some new directions for Evancho. Without foregoing the beautiful and lush classical-crossover compositions for which Evancho has become famous, she also extended her stylistic reach with contemporary material on songs such as the haunting folk song “The Rains of Castamere” from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones.  She also took a bigger step forward on her version of U2’s “With or Without You.” Moreover, Evancho added several original songs including the anthem “Take Me There” and “Open Fields of Grace.”

Throughout the summer of 2014, Jackie also did a special promotion with the tween clothing stores Justice.  She recorded a brand new song called “Go Time” which is available for download exclusively for free to Justice shoppers. She was also featured in the summer catazine as well as in stores on the video monitors.

Evancho dazzled American television audiences at age 10 gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. She was immediately signed to Columbia Records where she released a string of successful recordings including O Holy Night, Dream With Me, Heavenly Christmas and Songs From The Silver Screen. She has since acted in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep alongside Susan Sarandon, Shia LeBeouf and Nick Nolte, and performed as a special guest in Cirque du Soleil’s “One Night for One Drop” benefit at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. She also starred in the Fall 2012 GUESS Kids clothing campaign, and in June, she performed the classic film song “Over the Rainbow” at the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Evancho has also participated in the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., where she delighted President and Mrs. Obama. She performed before 100,000 people in Russia with opera stars Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Sumi Jo prior to the opening of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, and has performed in Japan before the Royal Family at the Imperial Palace. Her first PBS special was one of the top pledge producing performances in PBS history. Her wide-ranging achievements caused Billboard to include her on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21” in 2011 and 2012.
