In June 2011, eleven year-old singing sensation Jackie Evancho dazzled viewers with her first GREAT PERFORMANCES solo concert from the spectacular Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. In follow-up to her GP debut, the little girl with a big voice returns with a new special showcasing the great songs from the silver screen. Recorded in the movie palace splendor of the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles, Jackie puts her unique stamp on such audience favorites as “My Heart Will Go On” (Titanic), “Some Enchanted Evening” (South Pacific), “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” (The Lion King), “Pure Imagination” (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory) and many more.
