Jackie Evancho Takes on Broadway With 'The Debut' Album - Listen!

Jackie Evancho has dropped her new, Broadway-inspired album The Debut!

The singer and America’s Got Talent finalist released the 10-track album on Friday (April 12).

Jackie just turned 19 years old, making this her first album released as an adult.

“This is the first album where I was actually able to speak my mind, and people listened,” she told New York Daily News. “You’ll be able to see a bit of my ideas as an artist, rather than just a singer.”

“I spoke my mind a lot (in the past),” she added. “But no one really wants to take a 10-year-old seriously.”

Rather than the classical crossover music she has become known for, The Debut consists of Broadway numbers that Jackie put her own spin on.

“I really want to know what else my voice can do,” she explained. “I knew I could sing when I was 10, but I didn’t know what else my voice could do. It developed into different things and I found out that I have a pop voice now. Really, I don’t want to limit myself to one specific genre.”

Listen to The Debut below! You can also download it on iTunes.
