Jackie came onto the scene like a meteorite, and has stayed long enough to wear the novelty off. She has proven her gifts wherever she has gone. Listening to her sing the other day a new song, for me, I would have swore she has improved as in having a more mature sound. How can she get better? That's a mystery in itself. -- Jackie, you sing because it makes you happy, you said. Truthfully, your singing makes me happy, and so many like me here in the U.S. and around the globe. Be yourself and you will change the world to a kinder place to be. -- You go girl!!

Having watched Jackie since last May, heramazing growth in less than a year has propelled her from a little girl into beautiful young lady. Wonderful, but sad, since I'll miss the ittle girl.

The metamorphosis from the little girl to the tween to the teen and then adult has been and will be fascinating! Nothing is lost and the beautiful butterfly that emerges will shimmer and flash in the sun. "We are witness to a star being born!" Howie Mandel "We have in you, a superstar!"
