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.
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!
Best version by far
A little over-orchestrated and schmaltzy, but she has the purest voice and hits the high notes well.
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.
This version is breath taking especially notes at end. No sincere and as we know his voice is one of worlds all time most beautful and famius.
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 I've heard
