America’s Got Talent’s ten-year-old sweetheart, Jackie Evancho, stopped by to serenade Martha and her live studio audience with an angelic “Oh Holy Night.” She chatted with Martha about what it was like to discover her voice at the age of seven, and told Martha about her and her parent’s amazement the first time she sang. “They were as surprised as ever! They didn’t see it coming,” Jackie said. Martha concurred that her gift is absolutely “beautiful!”
