Тема: Jackie Evancho (США)
10-летняя девочка - сопрано из Питтсбурга (Пенсильвания, США).
Несмотря на то, что Джеки уже выпустила в 2009 году свой первый альбом "Prelude to a Dream", широкой публике о ней стало известно благодаря ее выступлению 10 августа 2010г. на America's Got Talent, где она просто поразила всех своим вокалом. Действительно, даже не верится, что поет 10-летняя девочка. Вот это самое выступление:
Jacqueline (Jackie) Evancho, born April 9th of 2000, is the 2nd of four children.
In January, 2008, Jackie’s mom bought the movie "Phantom of the Opera" DVD. Jackie would spontaneously sing the songs from the movie around the house constantly. Her mother was amazed at the quality of Jackie’s singing voice and asked her if she wanted to participate in a regional talent competition. She was enthusiastic about giving it a try. Her parent’s entered Jackie into the competition not planning for what was about to begin...
At the tender age of seven, Jackie sang her little heart out through first rounds and semi-finals, singing "Think of Me" and winning "audience choice" both times. For the finals, she sang "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" beating out 183 other contestants for the first-runner-up spot! As the youngest contestant in the competition, Jackie came in 2nd behind the judge’s choice of a 20 year old opera singer. That final round performance confirmation to her parents that she had a gift.
After the attention she gained as a result of that performance, Jackie’s parents found her a vocal coach specializing in young voices so that she didn’t destroy her voice doing what she loves.
In November of 2009, Jackie released a self produced CD, “Prelude To A Dream” to showcase her amazing voice. Since the release, she has seen sales all over the world.
Jackie realizes that God has given her the gift of singing and feels that He wants her to use it to bring joy, happiness and serenity to all who love to listen. She receives emails daily with stories of how her music has touched them and brought comfort to a sometimes stressful day or difficult situation.
Today, at the age of 9, Jackie has caught the attention of many in the music industry including the legendary David Foster and American Conductor/Composer, Tim Janis. She has performed on stage with David Foster, has sung for politicians, appeared on a PBS special, sang the national anthem at the 2010 home opener for MLB’s Pittsburgh Pirates, and will be performing at Carnegie Hall in Dec 2010. Jackie’s most recent accomplishment was being selected as a top 40 finalist for America’s Got Talent’s youtube contest. Even though she has some impressive credentials and has a cd selling all over the world, Jackie remains well balanced and is thankful for every opportunity.
