Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho, born April 9, 2000, is a young soprano from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Jackie was born to Michael and Lisa Evancho and has an older brother, a younger brother, and a younger sister. She started singing when she was seven years old, after watching the movie Phantom of the Opera. Her mother heard Jackie singing songs from the movie and allowed Jackie to enter a local talent contest just for fun, where she finished as the runner-up and was voted the audience favorite. Eventually she participated in other talent contests and started a YouTube channel. [1]

Jackie has performed onstage with legendary producer David Foster[2], was an invited performer on the PBS Special "Celebrate America" with conductor/composer Tim Janis, sang the National Anthem at an event honoring aviation pioneer General Chuck Yeager[3], and has performed many times at the invitation of Pennsylvania Senator Jane Orie[4]. Jackie also performs at numerous events and charity functions in and around her hometown[5].

Jackie Evancho sings in the "classical crossover" style of singers such as Hayley Westenra and Sarah Brightman, and studies singing with a voice coach.[6] She has released an independently-produced cover album with classic and newer songs.[7]
