Born to sing on stage... She is more than 'Just a Girl...'
Thank you trebor,
You've got that right. These videos are real treasures. This is no ordinary talent. Even in low register, Jackie stays right on pitch which isn't easy to do, especially after jumping to the high notes and back, an example of perfect relative pitch. Also Jackie has impeccable timing and rhythm, knowing/feeling exactly when to come in with the music to start a phrase, when to end a note for the phrase and when and how long to extend a note, acutely aware of the instrumentation. Jackie's sense of rhythm is apparent. She can't help moving perfectly with the music. Furthermore, At age 8/9 Jackie seems to have acquired a natural vibrato. Children at that age generally have no idea what vibrato is, much less have an inclination to use it. It has to be taught. It might be that Lisa coached Jackie in using vibrato. All together, these attributes in addition to other musical assets of hers and the maturity and purity of her voice account for Jackie's having been acknowledged a prodigy.

johnnyb: Yes sir, Jackie has disappeared for the last 6 months, quite the accomplishment wouldn't you say.😏

agog: darn shame. Jackie was the only celeb/entertainer I truly followed. I could understand and be happy for her if she found a true love and wished to be wife/mommy Jackie. I bet that ain't it though. See y'all in six months.

rickolsen: Agog and I met in person twice at two Jackie concerts. Once in Michigan and once in Indiana. He's a nice guy. I think Jackie's career is over. It was over for me a long time ago. She hasn't done any music I like in years.

johnnyb: Every one except Jackie has posted something on social media in the last few weeks, I don't know what she's trying to prove.

yellowstone2014: I suppose, she is not able to post, for what reason ever.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I had to have both gas lines plus a front tire replaced on my car. It cost $550. Thats over half the money I was saving for my property taxes. It was starting really hard, but it starts right up now. The Check Engine light is gone.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I just shaved. I hadn't shaved in two weeks so it was rough going, but I got it done. I'm watching football. I might eat a couple of Granny Smith apples later. They are my favorite kind of apple.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I gave them some gravy dinner and they are sleeping now. I'm watching football. Yesterday I went to the store and got some pastries and milk. I might have some later. I'm not supposed to eat pastries or drink milk, but I do anyway.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. Phoenix is sleeping, but Brandie and Sampson are awake. I just got some socks and undershorts on ebay. I got a good price. I like black socks.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some beef gravy dinner. They are sleeping now. I just ate a big bowl of beef stew. Now I'm watching football. Peyton Manning versus Brett Favre. Peyton wins the game.

jagoro: I opened a forum about Jackie Evancho and I see it's a rickolsen diary ...

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. They are sleeping. I'm watching football. I just went to the store and got some noodles alfredo. I'm not really into chicken alfredo. I just like the noodles and sauce.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. I just gave them some chicken gravy dinner. I'm watching football. I woke up about 20 minutes ago. Yesterday I went to the store and got some smoked ham lunch meat, mustard, and bread. I may have a couple of sandwiches later.

Admin: I don't want to appear discriminatory. It's just that I don't think any of our members read Vietnamese. I certainly don't. I think most of our members are American. If you post a thread/post in Vietnamese I will delete it and your account.

rickolsen: Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping. Brandie is eating dry dinner on my desk. I gave them gravy dinner a little while ago. Beef. Sometimes Brandie eats beef and sometimes she doesn't. Today she didn't. I'm watching football.
