Miss Mussel has a piece in the LA Times today on 10-year old singer Jackie Evancho, who is a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent.
The most curious part of the whole story for at this point is the change in her sound from the first AGT audition tape to her appearance on the show three weeks ago.
Singers – help a bivalve out here. What’s going on and why would you change a perfectly lovely treble into a faux-grown up soprano?
Exhibit A – audition tape – date unknown although she’s probably 9
Exhibit B – first AGT appearance on 10th August 2010 (start at about 1:35)
