Jackie Evancho is on course to become the youngest singer ever to get a UK album chart top five placing.
The America's Got Talent runner-up placed at number three with her debut record Dream With Me on Wednesday's midweek chart and is currently fighting off competition from new releases including Glee: The Music - Vol. 6 to retain the position for the official chart on Sunday.
If Evancho manages to achieve the feat she will break a record set by Charlotte Church in 1998, when the Welsh singer charted at number four with Voice Of An Angel at the age of 12.
The 11-year-old classical singer's new record includes duets with Barbra Streisand and Susan Boyle, both of whom she told Digital Spy praised her voice.
Evancho also cited Church as "an inspiration", saying that she is "a fan of hers".
