How many of you have heard of Jackie Evancho? This gal has a set of pipes that lends new meaning to singing.
I first heard of her when I watched a duet with her and Peter Hollens. Her beautiful soprano voice impressed me. I did a little checking. She was born in 2000, so she is now 19. She has been on both America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent, starting when she was just 10 and has been singing since before she was 8. Most of her early songs were from operas and though she sang them quite well, especially for her age, I’m not fond of opera.
Jackie was born and lives in Pittsburgh.
Incidentally, she sang at President Trump’s inauguration and even there, she had a tremendous stage presence that wowed the crowds, as well as the incoming and outgoing presidents.
In this video, she sings Can You Feel the Love Tonight from Lion King. Before you say, “Yeah, nice voice” and leave it at that, when she sang this, she was only 12-years-old. How many 12-year-olds do you know who can sing like this?
I plan on sharing the duet with her and Peter Hollens, but I wanted to let you hear what a fabulous voice she had even when she was 12. My question is, would you like to hear more of her songs and singing?
