Jackie Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly classical crossover]] singer who impressed the public on ''AmericasGotTalent'', singing "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKhmFSV-XB0 O mio babbino caro]]" and thoroughly stunning the judges and audience with her "voice of an angel." The richness of the voice has been met with disbelief that a little girl can sing so well. She had sung before, having been inspired by ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', but her appearance on AGT was what got her noticed. She finished in second place for that season of AGT but has unsurprisingly found greater success since. Her second album, a Christmas EP, topped Amazon.com's charts in pre-orders later going platinum. Making her the top debut artist of 2010. She has sung several more songs, and released the studio album ''Dream with Me'' featuring among other things a duet with BarbraStreisand. June 2011 had it debuting at #2 on the Billboard music charts.

She has made several appearances in public, such as a duet rendition of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdjl5b6tlns Silent Night]]" with KatherineJenkins at Rockefeller Plaza, a performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner," and performances with various symphony orchestras. On her own she sang [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_Q7AFys6bA&feature=related Oh Holy Night]] at the National Christmas Tree Lighting with the President in attendance.

Not bad for a 14 year old girl.

!Tropes
* ChildProdigy: Singing difficult operatic arias at age eleven.
* GrayEyes: Of the "innocent child" variety.
* ImprobableAge: Do you know many little girls that can sing duets with the top selling female artist ever? And hold their own?
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her last name is pronounced "I-VAN-ko."
* {{Pittsburgh}}: Her hometown. The city got behind her 100%.
* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: Michael Grimm may have won AGT, but she's been more successful and probably better known. The decision may have been justified due to the grand prize being a 1-year gig in Las Vegas, which might not have been a good environment for a 10-year-old girl.
* SingingVoiceDissonance: She talks like any young girl, but sounds like a much older singer.
* VocalDissonance: She was ten when she first hit it big, but she sings like well developed talents twice her age.
