Top Ten Most Musically Talented People

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Jackie's musical instincts are profound. Wikipedia lists her as a vocal prodigy alongside Julie Andrews and Beverly Sills. Perfect pitch and mellifluous tones produce an emotional impact that is unprecedented. - BobG

Already filling concert halls with 1000's of adoring fans at the age of 10, Jackie, now just shy of her 14th b'day, is in my humble opinion the premier voice of the 21st century. Her resume of accomplishments is already quite astounding and her star continues to rise at a meteoric rate.

Certainly Lennon, McCartney & Stevie Wonder deserve their positions in the top ten, but Jackie is just something else. The beauty of her voice, & her ability to convey emotions with it, are simply other-worldly.
The latter especially should be impossible for one so young. How can she express emotions she's never even had? But there she is, doing just that every time she sings.
There's never been anyone like her.

I have been present for Jackie's concerts. Her voice soothes my emotions and allows me time to recover from the grind of daily life. I own all her CD's and listen to them often.
