Fresh from her spotlight performance of the National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration, platinum-selling vocal sensation Jackie Evancho releases her new album, Two Hearts. The album features a wide variety of classic and popular songs including Lucio Dalla's immortal "Caruso," the intermezzo from Cavalleria rusticana, "Attessa," Enya's "May It Be" from Lord of the Rings, Celine Dion's "Have You Ever Been in Love" and Taylor Swift's "Safe and Sound" all sung in Jackie's angelic style.
Jackie Evancho dazzled American television audiences at age ten gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC's America's Got Talent. Since then, she has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of over 2.5 million in the U.S., acted in Robert Redford's The Company You Keep alongside Susan Sarandon and performed for President and Mrs. Obama at the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington D.C. Her broad successes lead Billboard Magazine to include Jackie on their list of "music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21" in 2011 and again in 2012.

We all have our own personal favorites, but I would have to argue for May It Be--her voice is perfectly supported by the music, and is just breathtakingly beautiful. I really enjoyed both disks, and thought that the weakest song was still very strong. Her voice has always had a transcendent, bell-like quality, and she has now added a rich, enveloping warmth to it, as well. The combined effect is thrilling.
The second CD has 5 songs written by Jackie. The lyrics! Oh, my god, the lyrics are astounding, heartbreaking, amazing. 'Sane' is, I trust, just an artistic intensification of the fears, tensions and needs of all adolescents. 'Pedestal' answers a lot of questions, it had to be hard to have millions of people think of you as an actual angel, and this song tells us it was. There is room for growth, but it is really amazing, and a little harrowing to admit, that these lyrics were written by a high school student.
I pray Jackie stays sober (as she always has been) and pursues her artistic vision without succumbing to the demons and fears lurking out there for all of us. My personal hope for her future is to see her get into a room with some genuine musician artists (rather than technicians) who really get her, with no producers in sight, and see what they could create.
I would travel to Ireland to see her perform with Enya. Imagine if they collaborated on an album (I know, but it would sound incredible).
