The two performed 'When You Wish Upon A Star' for Bennett's "Duets II (Limited Edition)" album.
A concert featuring Jackie Evancho and Tony Bennett might be a dream come true for their fans, but reports are false about the two performing together in September at a California venue, according to Jackie's agent. Agent Marc Johnston said the news is "inaccurate and false." "There have been discussions about them doing a concert together, but it's not confirmed.

Jackie and Tony performed "When You Wish Upon A Star" for Bennett's Duets II (Limited Edition) album. She performed the song alone on her Dream With Me CD. Jackie also appeared in a Target commercial with other stars to sing "Happy Birthday" for Tony's 85th birthday. The …

A portion of the proceeds from the "One of Us" singer's performance tonight will go to the Red Cross of Butler County.
“If God had name, what would it be/And would you call it to his face…” If you can finish the next lyric then you remember Joan Osborne, the curly-haired pop-folk darling who broke onto the music scene in 1995 with her smash hit One of Us. In the time since the ethereal One of Us ruled the radio airwaves, the Grammy-nominated Osborne has mostly flown under the radar, touring with Motown-backing band The Funk Brothers and with the Dixie Chicks. She later appeared in the documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown. In 2008, Osborne returned to her rock roots with Little Wild One, an album that the same team that gave us One of Us produced. She now is set to release Bring it on Home, which Osborne described on her Web site as a bluesy mix of…

The 11-year-old Richland star also releases 'Dream With Me' CD/DVD.
Singing star Jackie Evancho will come full circle tonight when she performs on the season finale of America's Got Talent, the show that launched her career. A year ago, the community gathered around TVs to watch the season finale of America's Got Talent to see if Jackie would win the contest that catapulted her to fame. This year, instead of nervously awaiting the results of the contest, Jackie will perform Nessun Dorma on the finale as others wait to see their fate on the reality competition show that airs at 8 p.m. tonight on NBC. Given the incredible success Jackie has had the past year, it is hard to believe that she did not win the America's Got Talent competition. She was the runner-up to winner Michael Grimm. Here's what Jackie is …
