Posted on

When America first fell in love with Jackie Evancho‘s voice, she was just an unknown 10-year-old trying to make it on America’s Got Talent.

Her version of "O Mio Babbino Caro" dazzled the hit show’s audience, its judges and host Nick Cannon, who told PEOPLE at the time, “That’s the best performance I have ever seen on this show.”

Now, the teenager is impressing again.

For her latest feat, Evancho, who began singing at age 7 after watching The Phantom of the Opera, is giving a nod to the classic by doing her version of the musical’s ode “Think of Me.”

PEOPLE has the exclusive premiere of the video. Watch below!

“From the moment I saw Phantom of the Opera with my family, I knew I wanted to record ‘Think of Me,’ ” Evancho, now 14, tells PEOPLE. “It’s such a beautiful song.”

But don’t expect only classical hits to appear on her third studio album, Awakening, which will be released Sept. 23.

“There are a few really fun surprises on the album,” she adds. “I especially liked covering U2’s ‘With or Without You.’ ”

Want to see Evancho live? Her tour kicks off Nov. 5 in San Antonio.
