Susan Boyle who? Jackie Evancho — a 10-year-old soprano from The Steel Valleys of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — is the world’s newest viral phenomenon after wowing the crowd with her rendition of Puccini’s famous “O Mia Babbino Caro” (Please don’t ask me to translate!) on NBC’s summer talent show hit, America’s Got Talent, Tuesday night.
The petite performer was invited to appear on the show after winning a Talent YouTube contest. (Visit Jackie’s channel here…) She describes her style as “classical crossover” and began singing at the ripe ole age of seven getting her first listen to the score from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.
And get this — Jackie’s already booked to play New York’s famed Carnegie Hall on Dec. 2.
Look at her go!
