Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fourteen-year-old vocal sensation Jackie Evancho’s new album, Awakening, signals some new directions for the platinum-selling artist. Without foregoing the beautiful and lush classical-crossover compositions for which Evancho has became famous, she also extends her stylistic reach with contemporary material on songs such as the haunting folk song “The Rains of Castamere” from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. Jackie also takes a bigger step forward on her version of U2’s “With or Without You,” and also sings a few original songs including the anthem “Take Me There” and “Open Fields of Grace,” which were written especially for her. Produced by Nick Patrick, Awakening also features the ethereal ballad “Memories” by the Dutch band, Within Read more Temptation, and the popular classic “Think of Me” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. Rounding out the album are the classical standards “Ave Maria” and Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise.” Says Evancho about Awakening, “I feel that my singing style has matured, and it’s easier for me to feel comfortable onstage.” Read less
