So far, fans have gotten small tastes of what Jackie Evancho can do, but with the release of Dream With Me her highly-anticipated, first full-length album, they will get their first full serving of her staggering talent.

The SYCO/Columbia album reunites the 10-year old singing phenomenon with legendary producer David Foster. Jackie caught the attention of Foster two years ago when she won a regional competition that allowed her to sing as Foster accompanied her on piano. “He thought her voice was extraordinary,” Jackie’s father Michael says.

So much so that the 16-time Grammy winner Foster helms Dream With Me and brought some remarkable company with him. The world’s most celebrated female singer Barbra Streisand duets with Jackie on one of Streisand’s signature songs, “West Side Story’s” “Somewhere,” while singing sensation and 2009 “Britain’s Got Talent” contestant Susan Boyle performs the tender “A Mother’s Prayer” with Jackie.

Dream with Me features a repertoire of classical arias and pop classics handpicked to suit Jackie’s angelic voice. Her range is so great that she ably shifts from the Disney classic “When You Wish Upon A Star” to Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma.”
