New Christmas album from “America’s Got Talent” favorite

 ‘Child prodigy’ is a term that gets bandied about a little too loosely these days. But in the case of 10-year-old wunderkind Jackie Evancho, it’s eerily apt. Maybe you caught the kid belting out an adult-velocity version of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” on “America’s Got Talent” last summer. Scary, right? But not bad for someone who’d already launchd her own YouTube channel at age 8. Long story short: She didn’t ace the TV competition, but she won big.

Simon Cowell’s SYCO label is issuing the whippersnapper’s new Christmas CD this week, “O Holy Night,” featuring her breakthrough hit “Pie Jesu” plus seasonal faves like “Silent Night” and the title track. And there’s a bonus for longtime fans: a DVD boasting her four crowd-pleasing “America’s Got Talent” performances. Evancho will also appear on “Oprah” this Tuesday.
