Jackie Evancho to Perform with Tony Bennett in August

Concert planned for amphitheater in California.

Jackie Evancho announced today that she will perform with Tony Bennett this summer in California.

"Very excited to announce that my friend Tony Bennett and I will be performing together in concert at the Ironstone Amphitheatre on August 31st!!!!" the 12-year-old announced on her Facebook page.

The five-tier, horseshoe-shaped Ironstone Amphitheatre is part of the Ironstone Winery complex located in Murphys in California's Gold Rush Country.

Jackie and Tony performed "When You Wish Upon A Star" for Bennett's Duets II (Limited Edition) album. She performed the song solo on her Dream With Me CD.

Jackie also appeared in a  commercial with other stars to sing "Happy Birthday" for Tony's 85th birthday.

In March, The Pinetree.net reported that Ironstone Amphitheatre announced the concert would be part of its 2012 concert season. At the time, Jackie's agent Marc Johnston said the news was "inaccurate." Since then, an agreement was reached.

This time the announcement is verified on the Jackie Evancho Facebook page.

(((WoW))) I am glad they worked things out. This will be epic. I may have to hitch-hike to the coast. Lets keep a close eye on this one. Can't you just hear them singing "The Prayer" together - - or "Wish on a Star" (I have goose-bumps thinking about it. Jackie and Tony could do anything together. The only draw-back is, does the orchestra have music for that ? Where is Foster when you need him ? Thanks , Cindy and staff for the heads-up. Fred
