The Miami Valley has been waiting for a chance to see this wunderkind in person. Now’s the time!

Jackie Evancho was just 10 years old when she sang “Panis Angelicus” on America’s Got Talent. That performance was just the beginning for this young girl. With her astonishing voice, Evancho has been invited to sing all over the country since her 2009 debut. She has performed for the Christmas tree lighting in D.C. with the President and Mrs. Obama, the royal family in Japan, and Pope Francis during his U.S. visit. Evancho has also filmed two shows for PBS Great Performances and in 2016, at just 16, she released her fourth studio album. The singer performs classical as well as popular and Broadway music, so we’re definitely in for a wonderful show.

“Acting and singing are actually very similar because they’re both telling a story.” (Jackie Evancho) . . . These are musical stories you’ll definitely want to hear!
