Jackie Evancho hasn’t forgotten the folks who helped put her on the map.
According to her official website, the 11 year-old Opera cutie will pay a visit to Piers Morgan’s new CNN chat show Friday evening, July 1.
The show airs live at 9:00 PM EST.
Morgan was one of Jackie’s biggest cheerleaders last season as she made it all the way to second place.
“I am going to be known as one of the guys who helped discover Jackie Evancho and that makes me happy,” he said at the time.
On Monday the 11 year-old Pennsylvania girl stopped by for a chat with Sharon Osbourne at her daytime show, “The Talk.”
The sixth grader credited her parents for keeping her grounded: “I am not a big fan of all the “stuck up” stuff,” she told her former judge. “I love being kind to people.”
Jackie – whose debut CD is already a million-seller – has traveled the world and performed for Muhammad Ali, Oprah Winfrey and President Obama. But her favorite place, she says: “Malibu. It is so cool there. I love the beach. I found a sand dollar there.”
