    No other singer is so affecting

    Scan the audience while Jackie Evancho is singing and you'll see maybe a quarter of them have tears streaming down their cheeks—with the rest not far behind. Not because she's a child. She isn’t a “child singer” anyway. She’s a singer, period. And not because she’s singing a sad song. Her magic works whatever the song. Nor does it matter what you normally listen to. Jackie has fans who love pop music, heavy metal, classical, country, jazz, easy listening--even people who don't care about music--except for Jackie's. The diversity “Dream with me” reflects her fans’ diversity. And she finds new depths even in songs you think have been done to death, or that another singer owns. I played "Angel" from this album for a friend who knew Sarah McLachlan’s wonderful rendition. Despite that, my friend absolutely loved Jackie’s version, which is quite different. I asked him to describe Jackie (I hadn’t told him anything about her). He said he pictured a woman in her mid-30s, tall and heavy-set. I showed him what she actually looks like. He was astounded. In performance, you see a happy child walk quickly onstage. But as she opens her mouth to sing, she becomes this timeless being who seems to understand life’s joys and sorrows profoundly. When the song is done, the child reappears, smiling, waving with both hands. Even the experts can’t fully explain how she does this, but they try. They say a voice like this comes along perhaps every 50-100 years. They talk about the richness of her voice. How she maintains a full, consistent tone throughout her range. Her perfect pitch. How her highest notes never sound like she stepped on a cat. Experts also marvel at her phrasing, and the way she works the notes and the melodic line (without overdoing it, like most American Idol singers do). And her overall musical intelligence. Meaning she doesn't just want you to admire the beauty of her voice; she wants to take you somewhere. Here’s a child with a happy upbringing who sings convincingly about things she’s never experienced herself, because she's able to find the universals within every song. So when she performs "Lovers," from the Chinese movie "House of Flying Daggers," she sings convincingly, not because she’s ever been in love like that, but because she’s a great storyteller, and because she does understand longing and sacrifice. At the same time those who’ve worked with her marvel at her professionalism—how quickly she grasps what producers tell her; how dedicated she is to recording the best performance possible. This professionalism extends even to interviews, where she’s invariably thoughtful and diplomatic. She’s confident but never cocky, friendly but never gushy, ambitious but never a diva—but ready to be compared to any other singer, regardless of age. People gush over performers all the time. This is different. Listen to anything she’s done, then pre-order “Dream with me” so you can get it as soon as possible.

    Absolute Perfection

    Jackie is the most powerful force in music in 100 years. Her angelic voice brings tears to your eyes no matter how many times you hear it. The fact that David Foster produced " Dream with me " tells the story. He only works with the best in the world. She is not just a singer. Every note seems to come from the center of her soul. This CD is absolutely Grammy award material. Good Luck, Jackie. And thank you for sharing your incredible talent with all of us.

    A Voice Like This comes along...

    The full-length debut from Ms E - the greatest voice of yours and my lifetimes - has been so anticipated that it simply could not live up to expectations. Well... This CD blows through those expectations and brings her stunning voice to us, care of David Foster's production, in unforgettable arrangements that do her more than justice. David "gets" that Jackie is a national treasure. Can not wait for more, more, more from Jackie and that instrument of hers. Bravo, Jackie !!

    An extraordinary CD

    “Dream With Me” contains 14 beautiful songs performed with a richness and warmth unique to Ms. Evancho’s incredible voice. When you listen to Jackie you to feel and share her emotional connection to the music. Having savored every promo clip of this album I'm anxiously awaiting its full release and have preordered numerous copies.

    I love all the songs that Jackie sings. My favorite is her duet with Susan Boyle singing "A Mother's Prayer". I have told my family I want them to play this cd "Dream With Me" at my celebration of life (when the end comes which hopefully is a long time away yet). I wish Jackie could stay this young and sing as beautiful as she does forever. I get goosebumps when I listen to her songs.

    A bargain at any price

    This CD has 14 tracks and all of them are diamonds. Most of the musical pieces have been around a long time but Jackie's interpretation breaths new life into all of them and makes them her own. A phenomenal offering from a phenomenal singer.

    I have not heard anyone like her voice in my life. Be warned, it will be very difficult for you listen to other singers once her voice touches deep within you. Must have if you are looking for voice that touches your heart.

    If you haven't heard Jackie, then you don't know what you're missing. Simply angelic. She should be an inspiration for all young people to aspire to.
