The Top TenXW

1Pie Jesu - Jackie Evancho

I remember when I saw and heard this on Americas Got Talent.
I had to sit down. Most amazing performance, unearthly, incredible.

This is probably the BEST of many songs Jackie sings in regards to the Jackie Effect, but a close second (very, very close) has got to be O Mio Babbino Caro from a talent contest when she was around 8 years old.

2Nessun Dorma - Jackie Evancho

Yes, this is the one that gives me chills every time. Her most astounding rendition of this is from her appearance as a guest on "Britain's Got Talent" found on YouTube. - BobG

Her delivery as a 10-12 year old was pitch perfect. This song still meets as world-class, but what would Nessum Dorma sound like he she sang today?

I would love to see her in person. purity at its best. has grown into a living goddess

3Se - Jackie Evancho

Se is so smooth, the emotions sneak up on you. Just listening and enjoying, then wham!

4Lovers - Jackie Evancho

The number she opened with at her very first "full" concert; at Houston in February of 2011.
She stunned the audience from the very beginning, and hasn't stopped ever since!

The final line 'your voice still echos in my heart' always affects me.
Her interpretation is spot on.

5Angel - Jackie Evancho

Sure looks like an angel. - HezarioSeth

6To Where You Are - Jackie Evancho

When she sang this in her Thousand Oaks concert, I almost had to get up and go stand in the corridor...

When you see a little child watching her on T.V. he isn't looking or listening to her he is still a child and recognizes an angle when when we can't

7I Dreamed a Dream - Susan Boyle
8Bridge Over Troubled Water - Jackie Evancho

Probably the best version of that song that I've ever heard.

I wish the composer of the song would comment

9The Rains Of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

Haunting, spellbinding, enchanting.. another song now owned by Jackie Evancho..

Just look at her at this age. she is is a goddess. angels could take lessons from her thanks for the feelings

12Mi Mancherai - Jackie Evancho

Have to go all the way back to "Dream With Me - in Concert" for this one. It's just a wave of beautiful vocals that washes over you, combined with the image of Jackie in baroque era costume, taking you to a different time and place." - BobG
