Jackie Evancho, Child Singing Star

At the tender age of 10, Jackie Evancho wowed millions by singing with the voice of a full-grown opera superstar on "America's Got Talent."  "Are you sure you're not 30?" judge Piers Morgan asked.  She came in second place on the show, but since then the tiny blond wunderkind has shot to fame around the world. 
 
Jackie Evancho talks about training her voice, her future dreams, and what it's like being a super star at the age of (now) 11.  Jackie Evancho performs with the "David Foster and Friends" concert on Dec. 29 at Mandalay Bay.
