Soprano Jackie Evancho is set to perform on Jan. 21 at The University of Texas at Tyler's R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center, said Susan Thomae-Morphew, Cowan Center executive director.

The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $37 and can be bought at the center's box office, by calling 903-566-7424 or online at cowancenter.org.

She will sing classical and pop music.

As a child, Miss Evancho first gained attention after videos of her singing music from "The Phantom of the Opera" were posted on a social media. When she was 10, she appeared on the TV talent show "America's Got Talent."

That led to a recording contract and concert tour.

In 2014, her album "Awakening" entered the Billboard Classical Chart at No. 1.
