Pittsburgh born and raised, Jackie Evancho’s big break came during the fifth season of America’s Got Talent when she was just 10 years old. She came in second, but used the reality show as a launching pad for her crossover classical career. Since 2009, she has recorded five full-length albums. In 2010, her EP O Holy Night was certified platinum, making her the youngest artist in the U.S. to sell over a one million copies an album.
