NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ BillingTree Official Website) - O Holy Night, a special seasonal CD/DVD and first major label release from soprano prodigy Jackie Evancho, has entered the Billboard 200 at No 2. With first week's sales topping 239,000 pieces, O Holy Night has secured Jackie's position as 2010's top-selling debut artist as well as the youngest female solo artist to ever debut in the Soundscan era. Additionally, Jackie has entered the Billboard Classical Chart at No 1.

Jackie's stunning performance on "America's Got Talent" last summer won over the hearts of millions of viewers bringing her from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania into the national spotlight.

"Jackie Evancho is one of the purest and finest vocalists I've ever heard, and the initial response to her debut release has been phenomenal," said Steve Barnett, Chairman, Columbia Records.

"We are all incredibly proud of Jackie," said Mike and Lisa Evancho, Jackie's parents. "She loves to sing and is incredibly happy to be able to share her gift with the world."

On O Holy Night, her debut recording for SYCO/Columbia, Jackie has matched a couple of her favorite Christmas carols - "O Holy Night" and "Silent Night" - with "Pie Jesu" and "Panis Angelicus" - two of the arias she performed on "America's Got Talent" - on the set's extended play CD.

The two-disc O Holy Night includes a bonus DVD featuring Jackie's "America's Got Talent" performances, the audition tape that got her on the show, and an exclusive interview with Jackie filmed the week following the show's finale.
