Singing sensation Jackie Evancho to perform at the Clarion on Nov. 3

Classical-crossover artist and songwriter Jackie Evancho will bring her dazzling voice and expressive melodies to The Clarion at Brazosport College on Nov. 3.

Evancho will take the Clarion stage at 7:30 p.m.

Since she first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 – gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” – Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of more than 2.5 million in the United States.

Along the way, she has also made history – the youngest solo platinum artist, the youngest Top 5 debut artist ever in the U.K., the youngest person to give a solo concert at Lincoln Center, the highest-ranking debut artist of 2010. All six of Evancho’s albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. The magnitude of her success led Billboard twice (in 2010 and 2012) to include Evancho on its list of “music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21.”

Evancho’s meteoric rise is already a show business legend. YouTube video stardom led to her spectacular, against-the-odds appearance on “America’s Got Talent” in 2010 that delivered the heat and the promise of a new star. Her breakthrough was transformed quickly into the basis for a serious career.

In less than a decade, Evancho has made seven chart-topping albums and DVDs, headlined three PBS television specials, appeared in the film “The Company We Keep” at the request of her co-star Robert Redford, and tirelessly toured the world, singing for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, other world leaders and her fans everywhere. In addition to her solo success, she has recorded duets with such notable artists as Tony Bennett, Susan Boyle, Il Volo, Plácido Domingo, Barbra Streisand, Chris Botti, The Tenors and Joshua Bell.

Fresh from her spotlight performance of the national anthem at the Presidential Inauguration in January, Evancho recently released her long-awaited new album, “Two Hearts,” from Portrait/Sony Masterworks.

Evancho’s show on Nov. 3 is sponsored by Freeport LNG.

Tickets for the performance are $55 for adults, $50 for seniors and Brazosport College employees, and $20 for students and children.
