Jackie Evancho got her big break at just 10-years-old as a contestant on America’s Got Talent, where
the breakout star finished in second place. Her first release for Columbia Records, a Christmas EP titled “O Holy Night,”
was certified platinum and earned Jackie the distinction of being the top-selling debut artist in 2010, as well as the
youngest solo artist ever to go platinum and debut in the Top 10.
In 2011 she released Dream With Me, her debut major label full-length album. Dream With Me was
produced by the legendary David Foster, and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and is certified Gold. She recorded
