When this girl sings, texting and conversations stop, and jaws drop. I saw this for myself while waiting for the taping of the Queen Latifah show. Jackie was rehearsing, and (almost) no one in the waiting room knew who she was. They do now.

No gimmicks, no post production magic, no showing off.
Just a beautiful, beautiful voice that cuts to the soul.
Thank you Jackie Evancho for making the world a better place.

Get ready to drop your jaw, pee in your pants, and shed lots of tears... She is THAT good. I only need think about her singing The Lord's Prayer, and I begin to weep... I have never been touched so deeply by another human voice. I cannot even begin to imagine where this young girl will go in her adulthood - I believe she is going to eventually shake the music world to its core. Amazingly, she continues to improve... so we need to come up with a better superlative than "perfection" - because she is already beyond that measure.

If music had a Miss America, it would be Miss Jackie! - BobG
