Why She's Hot: Pint- sized vocal powerhouse Jackie Evancho is old news to the crossover classical crowd, who discovered her remarkable, gotta-hear-her-to-believe-her talent with her 2009 debut release, "Preluade to a Dream," Evancho, who become the youngest person ever to headline New York's legendary Lincoln Center in Nov. 2011, is looking to expand her already sizable audience in October 2012 when she will release her fourth full-length, "Songs from the Silver Screen": an album of timeless film tunes, including "Pure Imagination," "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," and a titanic version of "My Heart Will Go On" that will have Celine Dion quivering in her stilettos.
