Jackie Evancho Performs on 'Today' Show
Child star from Richland promotes CD to be released Tuesday.
Jackie Evancho, the 11-year-old international singing sensation from Richland Township, has a busy week planned as her "Dream With Me" CD is released Tuesday.
"At just 10 years old, Jackie Evancho stole the spotlight on 'America's Got Talent' last summer," said "Today" show co-host Natalie Morales as she introduced Jackie on Monday morning's NBC show. "Now at 11 she's releasing her first full-length album, 'Dream With Me.'
"Jackie, good morning. You had an a phenomenal weekend because I hear it's already No. 1 on Amazon.com's best-seller list. You're beating out Lady Gaga and Adele. How does that feel?"
"It feels amazing," Jackie said with a big smile, then added, "and I kinda feel sad because I'm kicking them out of their spots."
That garnered a big laugh from Morales.
"I think they'll get over it because you are just such a natural and amazing."
Morales then asked about Jackie's summer tour.
Jackie said she is "very excited" about the tour that starts in August.
"I don't know much about it," Jackie said, "but if you guys want to learn more then you can just go to my website and find out."
She then performed "O Mio Babbino Caro" with the producer of her album, Grammy-award-winning David Foster, accompanying her on piano.
