America's Got Talent star signs deal with Target
Target has announced that it is partnering with soprano singer Jackie Evancho for the exclusive, deluxe edition of her first full-length studio album, “Dream With Me.” The deluxe edition - which includes four additional new songs - is currently available for pre-order at Target.com, and will be available at Target stores nationwide beginning June 14.
“At the young age of 11, Jackie is an amazingly talented artist and we know Target’s guests will be excited about the arrival of ‘Dream With Me,’” said John Butcher, VP entertainment for Target. “Her youth and undeniable passion for singing enhances Jackie’s natural ability to captivate everyone who listens to her, and Target is happy to play a part in her music.”
Evancho first gained worldwide fame with a celebrated runner-up finish on the fifth season of “America’s Got Talent.” Evancho’s first release, “O Holy Night,” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Chart, No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and achieved Platinum status in a mere five weeks, making her the youngest female solo artist to debut in the Top 10, and the top-selling debut artist of 2010.
