Dream With Me is the first full-length album from 10-year-old soprano prodigy Jackie Evancho, America’s 2010 top selling debut artist.
A contestant on America’s Got Talent in 2010, Jackie catapulted into the quarter finals round when her unaffectedly pure performance of Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro (one of Maria Callas’ signature arias) won the show’s YouTube round. Jackie performed five times on the show over the summer. Her astonishing classical crossover soprano performances marked the arrival of a major musical talent.
Born in Pittsburgh, Jackie first began singing at age eight after experiencing The Phantom of the Opera on DVD. She launched her own YouTube channel and started vocal lessons a few months later. She performed at local talent shows, going on to high profile events including singing the US national anthem at Pittsburgh Pirate Games.
Dream With Me has a repertoire ranging from classical arias to pop classics to oscar-winning show tunes with highlights that include two extraordinary superstart duets showcasing the young vocalist performing with music legend Barbra Streisand (Somewhere from West Side Story) and international phenomenon Susan Boyle (A Mother’s Prayer).
