Nora and Jackie Evancho
Last month I was entranced by the PBS fund raising promotional CD, Dream With Me in Concert, featuring eleven-year-old child prodigy singer, Jackie Evancho (pronounced evanko). My granddaughter Nora's third birthday was coming up soon, and I was pretty sure she would like the video; so I responded to PBS's invitation to make a contribution and receive a copy of the Jackie Evancho concert video.
We were in San Francisco for Nora's birthday, and my hunch that she would like the video was confirmed. She stood in front of the TV monitor for nearly the entire one hour concert transfixed by Jackie Evancho. Nora noticed how beautifully Jackie was dressed and, after watching for a few minutes, she went upstairs and changed into her pink party dress. I took the opportunity to take the pictures below of Nora and Jackie and Jackie and Barbara Streisand's duet which was one of the numbers on the PBS video.
Jackie Evancho is truly a child prodigy of whom we will be seeing and hearing more in the future. A couple of days ago I heard that she has been cast in Robert Redford's new political thriller, The Company You Keep.
