Temple Theater in Lufkin preparing to host opera sensation Jackie Evacho

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - At just 10-years-old, she wowed the judges -- not to mention millions of Americans -- to a 2nd place finish on America’s Got Talent. On Friday, she hopes to wow an audience much closer to East Texans' hearts.

Internationally-acclaimed opera singer Jackie Evacho is performing Friday night at Temple Theater in Lufkin. Evacho will perform selections from an album she recently released.

“She’s going to be singing several songs from her new album just coming out in the coming month, but it’s basically her favorite Broadway songs with her own special twist to them," said Jennifer Allen, executive director of Angelina Arts Alliance (AAA).

Allen added that it’s the Angelina Arts Alliance’s mission to continuing bringing the best in performing arts to East Texas.

Tickets are still available for Evacho’s performance. If you’d like more information, you can call Temple Theater for more information, or visit the theater’s website to buy tickets and more.
