Evancho first rose to stardom on the 2010 season of television reality show "America's Got Talent", finishing second. Released last November, Jackie's major label debut--the Christmas EP "O Holy Night"--was certified platinum, selling over 3 million copies worldwide. Is it any wonder Columbia would want a full-length Christmas record as soon as possible?
Evancho did release a non-holiday set earlier this year. Produced by David Foster, "Dream With Me" features duets with Barbara Striesand and Susan Boyle. The new Christmas album, THR reports, will be produced by Rob Mounsey, whose prior client list includes Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, and Billy Joel.
Though no other details were released, and while her representatives aren't talking, perhaps Jackie will be asked about the news when she returns to "America's Got Talent" for their September 14 season finale.
Here's a nice little reminder, from last year's National Christmas Tree Lighting, of why a Christmas album from Jackie Evancho is worth looking forward to.
