A worldwide sensation when she was only ten years old, Jackie Evancho has moved past the exuberant promise of a child prodigy vocalist, becoming a mature young adult with a clear direction as to where she, as a creative artist, is taking her career as a singer.
Since she first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 – gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent – Jackie Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of over 3 million in the US. Along the way, she has also made history – the youngest solo platinum artist … the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K. … the youngest person to give solo concert at Lincoln Center … the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010. All seven of Jackie’s albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. The magnitude of her success led Billboard twice (in 2010 and 2012) to include Jackie on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21.”
Jackie is currently in the studio working on her next album – an album of contemporary theater songs. Songs from Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress, Greatest Showman, Wicked, Rent, Spring Awakening. As an 18-year-old, Jackie wants to embrace what she considers the new American songbook. Jackie is the first recording artist to embrace this new and very popular emerging genre.
Tickets are $79.50, $65.50, and $49.50. Performance is at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St, Downtown Clearwater.
