A legend already and still in her teens, singer Jackie Evancho seizes a pivotal moment in her career to reveal a fresh side to her art with the release of Two Hearts, her new album from Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks - the beautiful soprano also has a passion for pop and an emerging gift for songwriting. Two Hearts features the classical crossover songs and enduring favourites that are her signature sound, along with five songs that explore the newly discovered pop side of her voice, four of which she co-wrote.. Fresh from Evancho's spotlight performance of the National Anthem at January's Presidential inauguration, Two Hearts reveals to the world a young artist on a journey of discovery. The world knows Evancho as a platinum-selling, history-making teen vocal sensation. Her six previous albums have entered the Billboard Classical chart at No. 1. Her fans love her crystalline soprano voice, and it is the heart of her art. With her new album, Evancho explores her own creative evolution, a new joy in singing and in writing songs. The classic Evancho sound opens Two Hearts in the inimitable Lucio Dalla ballad "Caruso," first recorded by the great tenor Luciano Pavarotti. The sound echoes in the lovely "Attesa," arranged from the instrumental Intermezzo in Mascagni's opera Cavalleria rusticana; the classic Italian song "Mamma," a staple of classical and crossover singers for decades; and "How Great Thou Art," the soaring anthem of faith that was a favorite of Elvis Presley's. Great singers have inspired Jackie Evancho, and on Two Hearts she brings her gifts to three very different songs identified by singers she admires - the Oscar- nominated "May It Be," written for Enya to sing on the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring; the Oscar-winning "The Way We Were," which Barbra Streisand (with whom Evancho has recorded) made famous in the film of the same name and Taylor Swift's "Safe and Sound." Also included are Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall" and a live recording of Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years," as a duet with the emerging crossover tenor Fernando Varela. The Two Hearts album also includes five pop creations in which Evancho was a collaborating writer - "Sane," "Pedestal," "The Haunting" and "Wonderland," alongside "Apocalypse," which was released as a single in 2016 - in which the singer begins to explore her affinity for a straight-up pop sound. Since she first dazzled American television audiences at the age of 10 - gaining global recognition with her stunning debut on NBC's America's Got Talent - Jackie Evancho has released a string of platinum and gold albums, with sales of over 2.5 million in the US. In only seven years as a professional singer, Evancho has an astounding record of achievements. She has sung for Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, Pope Francis I, the Japanese royal family and Oprah Winfrey's farewell telecast. She represented the US in Russia at the opening concert of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. In addition to her seven albums, she has toured the world, made a guest appearance with Cirque de Soleil in Las Vegas, modeled clothes for GUESS and was cast by Robert Redford to play his daughter in the 2013 film The Company You Keep. Renewing the sound that made Jackie Evancho a household name, Two Hearts signals another chapter in her growth, creatively and personally - a new dimension in her work and inspiration, from one heart so full and passionate that it seems like two.
