To say a singer has matured is to applaud him/her for his/her hardwork and good grasp of singing technique. To say that of Jackie Evancho seems to be a little too early in the game. She's but only 11 year old! And this is her third CD (technically, the 2nd by a record label). Yet, after selling platinum for the first and now 1/4 of the way towards that for the 2nd (after a mere month), it's not too early to say that Jackie has matured in her singing.
A child grows so fast that if you are not looking closely, you lose that precious moment. And this child is so gifted and precious that we tend to forget she's still a child when she sings! Her voice is definitely not that of an 11 year old girl! Within a year of her first record selling CD, she has outdone not only the most matured singer in this field but also herself!
And, it's not all. She still has a long road (albeit a bright one) ahead of her. Would it be a little worrisome for us her ardent fan to think what the world has in store for her? She's entering the adult world of singing and recording at such a young age! Will she keep that purity in her voice? That innocence? That passion for learning and singing? Will she???
Dream with me is a dream comes true, not just for Jackie Evancho. It is a dream that comes true for all of us, the child in all of us. I've heard a great many singers and this one is unrivaled. Now, not some date in the future. This is the answer to The Lord's Prayer.
A star, an angel, 2 prayers, 2 guests and a total of 14 songs make up this wonderful collection of Jackie's singing. It's a keepsake and it's one that's going to guarantee unsurpassed pleasure. Yep, tune up your speakers and simply enjoy Jackie this weekend!
Last but not least, one of my favorite songs in this album is Imaginer, a song written by another fantastic singer, Lara Fabian! Enjoy....
The little girl who sold a million debut CDs in 2010 (making her the youngest artist with a platinum) has released another winner 3 weeks ago. She is one of the few singers who made me want to wake up in the morning & rush out to the store to get her music! Awesome! This CD was released in mid June and in less than a month, more than 1/4 million CDs have been sold! Yes! It's that powerful!
Dream With Me, Jackie Evancho's second full-length album, was released on June 14, 2011. It was produced by 16-time Grammy award winner David Foster and features duets with Barbra Streisand and Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle.
