"Jackie Evancho: Dream With Me In Concert," marks the solo concert debut of the 10-year-old girl with the extraordinary soprano voice. Already familiar to national audiences from her debut appearances on "America’s Got Talent," Jackie is the youngest star in the special "Hitman Returns: David Foster And Friends" concert, performing virtuoso interpretations of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Pie Jesu” and Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro.” Foster will co-host the special, and serve as music director.

Jackie Evancho’s concert will celebrate the release of her first full-length SYCO/Columbia CD "Dream with Me," which covers classical crossover material, and will be taped at the spectacular grounds of the magnificent The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. SYCO/Columbia Records will release the album, produced by 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster, on Tuesday, June 14, 2011.

Jackie’s musical selection on the program is scheduled to include “When You Wish Upon A Star,” “Nella Fantasia,” “A Mother’s Prayer,” “Nessun Dorma,” “Angel,” “O Mio Babbino Caro,” “Somewhere,” “All I Ask Of You,” “Ombra Mai Fu,” “Lovers,” “Imaginer,” “The Lord’s Prayer,” “To Believe,” and “Dream With Me.”
