Sony Music is proud to announce the upcoming release of Dream With Me, the first full-length album from soprano prodigy Jackie Evancho, available June 20th.

Dream With Me includes two extraordinary duets showcasing the young vocalist performing with music legend Barbra Streisand ("Somewhere" from West Side Story) and international phenomenon Susan Boyle ("A Mother’s Prayer") on her debut album.

A contestant on "America's Got Talent" in 2010, Evancho catapulted into the quarter finals round when her unaffectedly pure performance of Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro" (one of Maria Callas's signature arias) won the show's YouTube round. Jackie performed five times on the show over the summer. Her astonishing classical crossover soprano performances marked the arrival of a major musical talent.

One of 2011's most heavily anticipated new releases, Dream With Me is produced by the legendary David Foster, a sixteen-time Grammy winner (including three Producer of the Year trophies) who's worked with Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Beyoncé, Prince, Barbra Streisand and many others.

Sure to fulfill the promise of O Holy Night - Jackie's first release in America, a seasonal collection released last November which became the year's #1 best-selling debut recording with sales exceeding 1 million. O Holy Night rocketed into the Billboard 200 at #2, its chart and sales success secured Jackie's position as the year's top-selling debut artist in the US.

"Dream With Me is a breathtaking and beautiful debut album," said Steve Barnett, Chairman, Columbia Records. "Jackie and David have created an extraordinary collection that will be enjoyed by music fans for many years to come."

“I can say without a doubt that working with Jackie on Dream With Me was truly phenomenal. Her natural ability and the depth of her understanding of the musical process left me speechless. I think we have created a musical experience that will thrill audiences of every age. She was a pure joy to work with and I had a front row seat to one of the next great talents of our time,” said David Foster.

"We are incredibly proud of Jackie and thrilled at how fantastic her album turned out," said Lisa and Michael Evancho, the singer's parents. "Making her first studio album for Columbia has been a wonderful and exciting experience for Jackie, helping her grow as an artist and learn about music from some of the masters in the field."

A Pittsburgh native, Evancho first began singing on the cusp of her 8th birthday after experiencing "The Phantom of the Opera" on DVD. She launched her own YouTube channel and started vocal lessons a few months later. She performed at local talent shows, going on to high profile events including singing the national anthem at Pittsburgh Pirate games.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
