Jackie Evancho was inspired to sing by the musical “The Phantom of the Opera”. Evancho launched her career by making appearances in local singing contests, nursing homes and different events in Pennsylvania. This took up so much time that she was schooled by internet, having previously attended Pine-Richlands school. Jackie Evancho attended professional singing lessons, participated in a Children’s Festival Chorus and launched her own YouTube channel.
Jackie Evancho’s busy career continued with the U.S.A World Showcase Talent Competition and Kean Idol competition. Evancho managed to become a runner-up in both of these events. Eventually, largely due to her YouTube videos, Jackie Evancho was noticed by a record producer David Foster and offered participation in yet another competition where she earned a second place. In 2009, Evancho took part in Foster’s concert in New Jersey, and later that year released her debut album called “Prelude to a Dream”. The album, mainly consisting of cover songs, peaked on the Billboard charts and gained Evancho an exposure to a wide public, as well as boosting her net worth. Jackie Evancho then went on to participate in the fifth season of “America’s Got Talent”, where she finished as a runner-up, only losing to Michael Grimm.
In 2010, Evancho signed a record deal with SYCO and Columbia Records, and later that same year released an official debut album called “O Holy Night”.

The album, certified platinum by the RIAA in the United States and Canada, sold over 239,000 copies during the first week and by 2011 a total of one million copies. It is estimated that Evancho’s earnings from this album alone amount to $1.3 million. To promote her album, Jackie Evancho was even invited to be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey onto her “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. The same year Evancho met President Barack Obama, and performed during a number of important events.
A year later, in 2011, Evancho released her second full-length album titled “Dream with Me”. The album was soon certified gold with 161,000 copies sold during its debut week.

I have always despised people who thought they were better than others, and I made a promise to myself that I'd never turn into that kind of person. My family also helps to keep me grounded. Whenever I get a "diva moment," as they like to call it, they let me know it and say, "Stop acting like a diva!" They're pretty good at it, too.
I warm up with my mom and make sure I understand what the songs are about, and make sure I'm using the right technique. To be honest with you, I really don't practice a lot... Usually I say a prayer and ask the Lord to sing with me and help me and stand on the stage with me.
My parents don't want me to be exhausted. They let me stay home as much as possible so I can have my friends over.
Singing is my main goal, and I think philosophy will help me write songs.
