Evancho Family

The Evanchos are a typical American family with some seriously not-so-typical circumstances!

Parents Lisa and Mike raise their four kids, Rachel, 13, Zach, 15, Jackie, 17, and Juliet, 19, in Pittsburgh. At only 10-years-old, however, daughter Jackie entered the limelight after an attention-grabbing debut on America's Got Talent. She soon went on to become the youngest solo platinum artist in history!

This girl's had some incredible gigs too, like performing for the Pope and singing alongside of icons such as Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennett! One of Jackie's most well-known performances was singing the national anthem at President Trump's inauguration, a decision that brought both praise and criticism from her fans.

Home life isn't any less hectic, with Jackie's older sister, Juliet, navigating her dream of becoming a model as a transgendered woman. As Juliet grows as an LGBTQ activist and Jackie's pop stardom rises, this family faces some major drama you won't want to miss!

The Growing Up Evancho special premieres on TLC Wednesday, August 9th at 10/9c!
