The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

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's talent is simply off the charts. This is not only the most extraordinary version of Danny Boy, but truly one of the most moving and poignant musical presentations ever recorded.

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.

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

2 Celtic Woman

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

3 Michael Londra
4 Andy Williams Andy Williams Howard Andrew "Andy" Williams was an American popular music singer. He recorded 44 albums in his career, 15 of which have been gold-certified and three of which have been platinum-certified. He was also nominated for six Grammy Awards.
5 Judith Durham

Judith Durham is in a class of her own. I think her "live" version with an orchestra is the most touching of all. Not to be missed!

Surprised us all showing what a good emotional singer she was outside of the Seekers repertoire.

Best Rendition and Best Female voice...EVER!

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


9 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.
