Jacqueline Marie “Jackie” Evancho is an American child singer described as a classical crossover artist. After entering some talent competitions, issuing an independent album, Prelude to a Dream, and attracting interest on YouTube, she gained wider popularity in 2010 with her performances in the fifth season of the America’s Got Talent (AGT) competition, at the age of 10, finishing in second place.  With the subsequent release of her O Holy Night EP, she became the best-selling debut artist of 2010 and the youngest top-10 debut artist in history, and she went on to contend, in June 2011, for the top position on American album charts with her Sony Music debut album, entitled Dream With Me. Billboard ranked Evancho the top Classical Albums Artist for 2011.
