Fans of the show "America's Got Talent" may well know the name Jackie Evancho. Those who don't are about to get a treat.
Evancho burst into the music world after becoming the runner-up on season 5 of "America's Got Talent" when she was only 10 years old. Now 14, her angelic, operatic voice is maturing and continuing to stun audiences. Her latest work is an a cappella duet with YouTube star Peter Hollens covering Leonard Cohen's classic, "Hallelujah."
According to the website WatchThis.net, the pair actually recorded their parts from different parts of the country: Evancho from her home state of Pennsylvania and Hollens from Oregon.
The video was posted Friday and already has almost 300,000 hits.
