If its a struggle, its not hers. Jackie is and will always be the commercial success from AGT. Jackie is a Vocalist, that is she sings material that she can adapt and that works with her voice. Its really a matter of marketing the material in concert and on TV, as well as on social media which she will be doing. As far as her fan base, its a just a matter of getting the casual fans on board who are familiar with her but dont listen frequently to listen to the material by streaming it or checking out the album.

She has been trying re-invent herself as an adult artist and lose the "innocent child star" label, no doubt. But she is still searching for new commercial success and apparently a way to write original songs and get them heard. It's all part or re-invention and exploration in a career. It's a process and she is still working on it. Jackie would fully agree with this, it's a pretty simple concept. I agree with a lot of what you said there. However, the last sentence is FAR from certain. Her smallish but loyal fan base is all she's got, and she has thus far been unable to substantially increase it. That's part of the re-invention and exploration into other genres and songwriting. If she were to lose her current fanbase today, her career would be over as nobody would come to her shows or buy her albums. The struggle isn't to maintian her smallish fanbase...it's pretty loyal although it is gradually dying off. Her struggle is to re-invent the commercial success as an artist that she once had a decade ago. That has thus far proven to be entirely elusive.
