Jackie Evancho

-The 12-year-old classical crossover prodigy follows her “Dream With Me in Concert” with a program of some of the most beautiful songs to come out of Hollywood-

 

THIRTEEN’s Great Performances presents 12-year-old classical crossover prodigy Jackie Evancho’s second television special, Jackie Evancho: Music of the Movies, in August on PBS. This glorious concert special is scheduled to debut on WTVP-HD Saturday, August 11th from 7-8:30 p.m. Encore performances will air Thursday, August 16th at 1:30 a.m. and Saturday, August 18th at 5:30 p.m.

The new special, a follow-up to her popular debut special Great Performances Dream With Me in Concert, will be recorded in the opulent splendor of the newly restored Orpheum Theatre, one of Los Angeles’ most venerable landmarks, and will feature such evergreens as “Pure Imagination,” “My Heart Will Go On,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” and “Some Enchanted Evening.”.

THIRTEEN’s Great Performances is a production of THIRTEEN for WNET, one of America’s most prolific and respected public media providers. For nearly 50 years, WNET has been producing and broadcasting national and local arts programming to the New York community.

Jackie Evancho: Music of the Movies is directed by David Horn with conductor Bill Ross, and will feature Jackie singing arrangements of songs from movies (the full set list follows below).

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 Dream With Me in Concert for PBS’ Great Performances in 2011, and the special rapidly became one of PBS’ most broadcast programs of the year.
