Jackie Evancho America's Got Talent

Jackie Evancho wowed audiences when the 10-year-old took the stage on America’s Got Talent and sang with the talent of a girl far beyond her years.

Evancho has signed with SYCO/Columbia Records, the same label that signed Susan Boyle after she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent.

According to Rob Stringer, Chairman of the Columbia/Epic Label Group:

“Jackie has a rare and precious talent and we are excited to help develop that talent in her future recording career!”

According to Evancho’s parents:

“It’s already been an amazing journey for Jackie and we are so proud of and happy for her. Everyone at SYCO/Columbia shares our excitement about her future and we are pleased and honored to be working with such a great music company.”

Michael Grimm ended up taking the top prize on America’s Got Talent but at this point, we doubt Jackie minds all too much, although the $1 million first prize I’m sure would have been a nice added bonus.
