Jackie Evancho, the 10-year-old opera prodigy and runner-up from this season of America’s Got Talent, has signed with Syco/Columbia Records. It’s not too surprising that she’d sign with a label, given her viral popularity and obvious talent, and it’s even less surprising that she’d sign with Simon Cowell’s label, given her reality pedigree. Sometimes the world makes sense after all!
Evancho was a fan favorite on AGT, and week-to-week, the judges heaped more praise on her than any other contestant. It is a little creepy to hear what sounds like a fully matured operatic voice coming out of an adorable, tiny, blond child? It’s not…not creepy? But it’s also pretty stunning:
Would you buy a Jackie Evancho album, Music Mixers?
