Ten Year Old Opera Sensation Jackie Evancho

I don’t watch the plethora of TV talent shows that seem to pop up more and more every television season. But I’m very glad someone sent me this clip from one. Jackie Evancho sang Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” (“Oh My Dear Papa”) on Tuesday’s episode of American’s Got Talent … Continue reading

So I couldn’t help but smile, and be a little envious there’s not a harp version…yet…when I came across the most portable ‘instrument’ around, short of the human voice that is.
