Jackie Evancho - A Success StoryJackie Evancho came in second place during the America’s Got Talent 2010 contest. She was originally billed as a 10-year-old who was inspired into a lifelong singing career from watching “The Phantom of the Opera,” the movie.

Even though Evancho did NOT win AGT, she almost immediately got a recording contract from Columbia Records.

Even though her love of opera is a rather small market niche, Jackie has managed to capitalize off all her AGT exposure. To date she has release 4 different CDs: Songs From The Silver Screen, Heavenly Christmas, Dream With Me, and O Holy Night. Her first Christmas CD was successfully marketed on Facebook.

Jackie, now 12, has expanded her career options to include both acting (“The Company You Keep” 2012) and modeling (Fall 2012 GUESS Kids clothing campaign).
