Las Vegas’s hottest couple, Comedy Magician Murray SawChuck and his lovely wife, FANTASY dancer Chloe Crawford, surprised 13-yr old singing sensation Jackie Evancho backstage last night at The Smith Center during her intermission.
Murray and Jackie haven’t seen each other since 2010 when they went head-to -ead competing for $1 Million dollars on America’s Got Talent.
Neither of them won that year but Murray will be celebrating his 1-year anniversary headlining at The Tropicana Las Vegas in the Laugh Factory Theatre on May 1, while Jackie has become an international sensation around the world since her appearance on AGT.
Jackie’s father invited them backstage as a surprise to Jackie, and since Murray’s show is at 4pm and Chloe’s show at FANTASY is at 10:30pm they had enough time to buzz out the backdoor of the Tropicana and head to the Smith Center to see her show. After their visit, Chloe headed off to work at FANTASY at Luxor.
Murray said to a few people backstage, “I remember clear as yesterday when the 12 acts where being lined up to perform the night it was airing live to 22 million people. This was the episode where I was vanishing the 1918 Steam Train for my father and I was thinking, whatever the producers do, don’t make me close the show OR go AFTER Jackie Evancho. She was 10-years old and had a voice of an angel. Well, thank God I was the 4th act before the end of the show, and Jackie was right after me. I was like THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU as how do you follow someone as talented as that with such a GIFT!!! Not even vanishing a TRAIN can top her voice!”
