The Song of an Angel: Jackie Evancho

Did any of you happen to see 10-year-old opera singer, Jackie Evancho, on America's Got Talent last night? If not, you need to watch her right here, right now. Not only does she sing like an angel (and this is in no way an exaggeration), but she is absolutely adorable, too.

Be sure to click off my playlist in the right sidebar. You won't want any interference with this amazing performance. (Just in case you don't want to bother, I'm playing meadow noise so all you'll hear is birdsong. But even birdsong interferes with Jackie!)

Here's a link just in case the video won't work for you.

It may just be me, but there's the red X of death in the square instead of the video.

I don't see any place to play the song. I watch AGT every week and I have heard her. That little girl for sure has a wonderful God given talent. Just amazing how the music flows out of her with seemingly no effort. Hugs

Sue said...

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I uploaded a different version that seems to be working fine.

=)

Jess said...

Sorry Sue- still no music, but I googled her and WOW!

We have been watching her. She is absolutely amazing! I think she will win. I will be very much surprised if she doesn't win. I haven't heard anyone like her. Charlotte Church is the closest. And she was four years older when she sang the song Jackie sang last night. She will go far. David Foster ought to get her management. He could really advance her career.

Sue said...

Okay, I tried a new video upload and also added a link. I hope you will all get to hear her now.

Sorry!

=)

Wow. That was amazing. I was so shocked when she started to sing that that voice came out of the little girl. Thanks for sharing!

Mumsy said...

I still cannot see the video but the link works great. Hugs

Stef said...

What a gift!!

NatureGirl said...

Agreed, she brings tears to my eyes!

I wish I had a toenail of that kind of talent. Beautiful.

She sure has an amazing voice. I hope she can still have somewhat of a normal childhood though.

VK said...

Great video. I hear her and wonder when someone (like her mom) decided to send her to professional singing lessons. I wouldn't ever have thought to send my 6 year old to voice lessons even though she had perfect pitch.
She also really knows how to present hersellf magnificently. Such poise.
Very impressive.

It's really hard to believe that voice is coming out of that little girl!

Myrna Foster said...

Wow. I hope she wins. That brought tears to my eyes.

Momza said...

She reminds me of Charlotte Church.
Perfect, lovely, angelic.
I hope she wins--tho even if she doesn't, her life will never be the same after the show is over.
Wow.
