Top 10 Bands or Artists That Make You Smile

These bands have changed my life. Whenever I'm in a funk their songs are the ones I turn to to help put me in a good mood.

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

You can not resist her smile. Her mother once committed on Jackies smile, "When she smiles she brings rainbows and butterflies into the room".

Jackie is a lot older now (15) than she was in the picture on the left but she still has a wonderful, infectious smile and laughing, twinkling eyes to match.

She brings a BIG smile to my face, and warmth to my heart. God bless you, Jackie!

Check out Jackie's "Go Time" video and you'll understand. - BobG

I can't help it (not that I try to hide it). They have sunshine about them. Their music injects positivity and warmth which lasts a long time. They're special. - Britgirl
