28Ombra Mai Fu - Jackie Evancho
Not only does Jackie totally "kill" this song, but she sings so many others so well, that you cannot help but shed tears for the sheer beauty of her rendition. She has the most gloriously pure voice I have ever heard. Jackie is absolutely amazing - especially when you are sitting less than 4 feet away from her while she sings -! It is as if you just walked through Saint Peter's gates... And too, Jackie really is as beautiful as any angel you may imagine. Truly, she is well on her way to "drop-dead gorgeous." Gonna be many a young lad with a broken heart, crying for Jackie.
Some people just don't see what the fuss is about.
That's a matter of taste and expectation.
But an increasing number are discovering what a truly beautiful voice sounds like. Once you get it there is no turning back.
Listening to Jackie immerse herself into this opening aria from Handel's 1738 opera "Serse" (the character singing about his/her wonder over a magnificent tree) makes me take a breath and smile every time. Thank-you, Jackie.

29Teenagers - My Chemical Romance
haha its like so awesome! I mean I think that everyone that have heard this song has just screamed out and started dancing of happiness
