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.

      Thanks for your comment. I agree. After seeing Jackie Evancho briefly, Nora went upstairs and changed into her best pink dress and then came back down and watched Jackie, rapt, for 20 minutes or so.

      All beautiful pics, but my favorite has always been Nora watching Jackie sing Lovers. "Enthralled" is written all over this. Lovely, instantly classic photo.

      OMG, Nora Elizabeth is absolutely a gorgeous treasure ! Even with the two I have, I'm extremely jealous. I'm sure she has her grand father wrapped firmly around her little finger. Be careful not to make it too obvious who is your favorite. What's her name for you?

      As a precaution you may want to start stockpiling her favorite PBS programs since we know what one candidate thinks about it. Your grand daughter is precious by the way.

      Ralph, we also saw the PBS performance of Jackie and we were mesmerized, ending up making a contribution and receiving a CD. I loved seeing the pictures of Nora; she is adorable at 3!
