Jackie Evancho's Dream With Me Concert DVD

My mother received this concert DVD for her birthday and kept raving it about.  So I finally borrowed it.  Oh, my. 

Jackie Evancho is a little girl (age  11 when she did this concert) who’s got the voice of a 30-year-old.  In fact, it’s hard to believe that that voice comes out of that body! 

The Dream With Me concert encompasses a variety of music – from opera to a Broadway piece to The Lord’s Prayer.  Jackie’s voice is simply stunning in them all, and it was a delight watching her perform.  It’s mentioned on an interview in the bonus feature section that she has a natural understanding of music that goes far beyond her years.  She has been called a child prodigy. 

Prodigy or not, Jackie Evancho has been given an amazing gift from the Lord.  Listening to her sing brought tears of wonder to my eyes in praise to God for the incredible beauty He has created in music.  And the thought occurred to me: if one human can sing like that, imagine how Home will sound when the angels of Heaven and our glorified voices will sing in praise to the Lord?  God has given yet another shadow of Home – and this time, through a beautiful little girl with an incredible gift.
