Hot on the heels of her latest release, The Debut, multi-platinum recording artist Jackie Evancho will embark on a tour which makes a stop at the San Jose Civic on Friday, November 1.
The Debut is inspired by the great tradition of Broadway musicals and features songs from Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress, Greatest Showman, Wicked, Rent, Spring Awakening. As an 18-year-old, Evancho wants to embrace what she considers the new American songbook. Jackie is the first recording artist to embrace this new and very popular emerging genre.
Evancho first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 – gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s America’s Got Talent –Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of over 3 million in the US. Along the way, she has also made history – the youngest solo platinum artist … the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K. … the youngest person to give solo concert at Lincoln Center … the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010. All seven of Evancho’s albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. The magnitude of her success led Billboard twice (in 2010 and 2012) to include Jackie on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21.”
