AllMusic Review by

At only 11 years old, crooner Jackie Evancho wowed audiences with her considerable pipes on her 2010 debut EP, O Holy Night. Released just a few months after her first full-length outing, Dream of Me, Heavenly Christmas revisits the yuletide splendor of O Holy Night. At ten songs, it manages to expand her seasonal repertoire, and while the set leans hard on standard Christmas fare ("The First Noel,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” and “White Christmas”), Evancho's vocals are impressive as always, and the arrangements are mostly tasteful, with only occasional moments of bombast that threaten to wash the pint-sized soprano out to sea.
