I think Jackie's biggest problem is lack of promotion. With concerts not even being put on her website and only announced on fb a couple of weeks before, how does anyone expect them to be well attended? Many people likely plan their attendances at concerts a long time in advance.
And the pop songs in Two Hearts seem to me like they should have remained journal entries, the sort of thing you write when you're feeling down but never show to anyone. A decent management would have said that, and found some good original classical music that could attract new interest.
It seems pretty obvious to me that Jackie would prefer to be a pop star and have fans primarily in her own age bracket. I can't blame her for that, but she has to come around to seeing where her talent lies, and that talent is an outstanding one. Very few people can become celebrities in any field. See seems to enjoy most aspects of it, so she should to everything to see that she succeeds. This includes things like improved visibility. My gut feeling is that numerous people whom she has been in contact with, many of whom she probably respects, have told her that.
Although I don't think that we ever heard a reason that the song which she composed for Awakening disappeared, apparently without her knowledge, it probably crushed her. Thus these songs on Two Hearts. They are a second disk which I don't think added significantly to the cost, so I don't see a problem. I think I played that disk only once.
I do keep saying though that most pop music is forgotten very quickly, and Jackie has the potential to perform some classical music that will be loved centuries from now if she finds the right composer and they get the inspiration.
