Chart PerformanceEdit

"Songs From The Silver Screen" debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 (remaining on the chart for 13 weeks) and #1 on Billboard's Classical Albums chart (remaining on the chart for 72 weeks).

The top ten debut made then 12-year-old Evancho the second artist who ever "amassed three top 10 albums [on the Billboard 200] at such a young age."

Billboard ranked the album #7 on its 2012 year-end Classical Albums chart and #4 on its 2013 year-end Classical Albums chart. It was also the #36 Classical Album of 2014.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Allmusic gave the album 3-1/2 stars out of a possible five, stating: "Evancho's effortless and expressive voice lends itself well to the project" and the album "finds Evancho more than up to the task, displaying maturity and poise."

The Trades reviewer Paul Schultz wrote: "Your ears stare in wide-eyed wonder (yes, I know I'm mixing metaphors) that such a rich instrument belongs to one as young as Jackie. Her upper altissimo notes are beauty themselves, and her angelic voice now exhibits fuller and enriched low registers as she ages. ... Her lyrical pronunciation could still use some work as you can't quite understand all the words."

Tallawah Magazine chose it as their "Album of the Week" and rated it an "A+."

In their track-by-track analysis of the album, Classic FM praised, among other things, Evancho's "musical maturity" in "The Music of the Night" and wrote that "'Come What May' ... is another romantic number that perfectly suits Evancho's soaring soprano" and 'When I Fall In Love' ... is a gorgeous song that sounds like it was custom-built for Evancho's voice."
