Rarely has music moved me to tears. Only one time in fact and when I heard this young lady I didn’t cry either. That is because I held back the tears. Yesterday morning I heard Jackie Evancho sing a duet with Barbra Streisand. Who is Jackie Evancho? That’s what I said until I heard the angels in heaven singing through her.
What I heard was an angel. What I saw was a ten year old girl who came in second place in last season’s America’s Got Talent. It’s not a show I make a point to see so I missed Jackie and everyone else as well. I did see it last week, earlier this week, I don’t know but there was a six, seven and eight year old rappers on. They were so confident and cute… I digress.
I think I will alter my answer to one of the 31 Days of Blogging Honesty. I will remove Judas Priest from the list of songs for the deaf and instead add Miss Evancho. If you have never heard Jackie sing, I beg of you. I’m pleading, even as you read this. Take a few minutes and listen. Even if you open up a new window and go to a different blog, keep this window open and listen to the voice of an angel.
After hearing Jackie you might be interested in getting her soon to be released album, Dream With Me.
