The Top Ten

Most moving rendition of "Danny Boy" I have ever heard. I only wish she would sing it now with her more mature voice. Beautiful and haunting. If you have not heard her, go to YouTube and check it out, but be ready to cry.

Jackie recorded this incredible version when she was only 10. It has been used in multiple videos on YouTube, many that will tear at your heart strings. Achingly beautiful.

If you hear this version you may believe that Jackie love this song but it's the opportunity. So she will not sing it again. Thanks for doing it nevertheless this one time! - ohcnave

Used as backdrop to military funerals on Youtube. Saddest yet most poignant video on Youtube.

A little over-orchestrated and schmaltzy, but she has the purest voice and hits the high notes well.

With the technical skill and vocal range of a legitimate lyric soprano, she performed many styles from popular standards more.

Her voice is calming. Her emotion showed through in all she sang. I like her version better than any other..

As usual, just ever cassidy, just guitar, very simple, with a clear voice, the voice of angels, with her interpretation, make you want to cry, touches the heart,

13 John McDermott

John McDermott's a capella performance of Danny Boy is the purist version I have ever heard. I was one with the song, the emotion felt was one of all consuming focus on the story and that voice of John McDermott. Just beautiful. It touched my soul.

Worth the listen from Danny Boy album.
