CD, JACKIE EVANCHO: DREAM WITH ME
Here is the first full-length album from 10-year-old soprano prodigy Jackie Evancho. One of 2011’s most heavily anticipated new releases. Dream With Me is produced by the legendary Grammy-winning producer David Foster, who’s worked with Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Beyonceé, Prince, Barbra Streisand and many others.
Jackie Evancho comes into her own on Dream With Me, collaborating with Foster on a repertoire ranging from classical arias to pop classics to Oscar-winning show tunes. Album highlights include two extraordinary superstar duets showcasing the young vocalist performing with music legend Barbra Streisand and international phenomenon Susan Boyle.
“I can say without a doubt that working with Jackie on Dream With Me was truly phenomenal. Her natural ability and the depth of her understanding of the musical process left me speechless. I think we have created a musical experience that will thrill audiences of every age. She was a pure joy to work with and I had a front row seat to one of the next great talents of our time,” said David Foster.
A contestant on America’s Got Talent in 2010, Evancho catapulted into the quarter finals round when her unaffectedly pure performance of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” handily 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.
A Pittsburgh native, Evancho first began singing on the cusp of her 8th birthday after being mesmerized by “The Phantom of the Opera.” 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 national anthem at Pittsburgh Pirates’ games. Evancho caught David Foster’s attention when she won a regional competition that allowed her to sing as Foster accompanied her on piano.
This is a studio recording, not a recording of Jackie’s live concert in Sarasota.
