Best Child Singers of 2008


The Top Ten

1 Charice Pempengco Charice Pempengco Jake Zyrus (born Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, formerly known by the mononym Charice), is a Filipino singer who rose to popularity through YouTube. He is a transgender man.

Charice is totally Amazing oozing with talents and charisma even at a very young age she wowed those people who really know about music. A very humble girl and a good daughter and sister. Trully an inspiration to many. Keep up the good job Ming and continue amazing the people around the world with your fantastic voice. You're so blessed with the fans like the Divanatics who love, care and support you all the way. More power our Princess! - charming

The greatest Child star i have every met. She is stunningly and undeniably beautiful and the greatest among these other people below. We are looking forward to see Charice as the newest Pop Sensation next to Britney Spears. - hatcher234

It doesn't matter where she performs or who the audiences maybe, she always give it all and if you look at her eyes you know what I mean. She loves what she does... She's the VOICE...

she's the most talented kid alright... - 18wheeleredy

As her Pyramid song says, One step at a time to reach the TOP. not the other way around.. She has been dubbed by famous celebrities including Oprah, David Foster, Celine Dion, Josh Groban etc many to mentions because she is GREAT!

2 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.

Jackie not only has perfect pitch, she is able to create such emotions within the listener that she often brings her audience to tears. She can sing in many different languages with such perfection that native speakers of those languages are simply amazed at her diction. She has the most appealing personality, largely due to her very humble nature. She seems at home with the everyday fan, as well as with the President of the United States (singing at the National Christmas tree lighting last year) and talk show hosts in the United States, England, Canada, and Japan. She has appeared nationally and internationally, and is now set to be in a major motion picture. She is a great lover of animals and is the Nation spokesperson for the SPCA. I think the safest thing to say is that she embodies all we hope for in our young people. She is the whole package.

It's quite simple really! There has never been anyone like her and will never be again. If someone else comes along with similar talent they will merely be a copy of an original. She has the conviction and courage to sing music for the sake of its beauty not what is necessarily popular at the time. Not too many singers can say that. After you hear her rendition of whatever song she is singing you suddenly fall in love with it. Her haunting, buttery, velvety sound just shakes your soul and you want to listen to her over and over again. The voice of the century. As someone once said, "This girl could sing the phone book and still keep you mesmerized. " Buy her cds, dvds but above all see her live in performance. Soon you'll be following her all over the country just to witness this miracle that is wondrously in our midst. Her bubbly, vivacious personality is absolutely addicting and the emotions she brings to her concerts is utterly spell-binding!

Jackie I know is a child, while Charice since she is nineteen is not a child. That being said, Jackie is the only singer that I know of today that can lead people to tears because her singing is that beautiful and that soothing. When Jackie sang for the President, the First Lady, members of Congress and other dignitaries, she moved some of them to tears especially with her rendition of "The Lord's Prayer. "

Jackie at the age of 11 is already an International Platinum Recording Artist performing in "Sold-Out" Concerts in the USA. She will be doing Solo-Concerts this coming Monday Nov 7 at Lincoln Center New York, Dec 29 with David Foster Mandalay Bay Las Vegas, plus be one of the performers in a Concert in Tokyo Japan Jan 11, and the Solo-Performer in TWO Concerts on Jan 12 and Jan 13 in Tokyo Japan. Jackie's NEW Christmas CD "Heavenly Christmas" has been released TODAY November 1st. Jackie has also been selected to play a Major Role as the Daughter of Robert Redford in the Movie "The Company You Keep" which should be released next year. Jackie has done this without having anyone in her family having any connection or experience in the Music or Performing Arts Industry - Just Amazing.

3 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Hemsworth (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known as Miley Cyrus, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the more.

And with 7things and can't be tamed and who owns my hart she proved that she is a pop star and one day she will earn a big music award like a grammy or
An award from mtv or anything because she is talented

That's why i look up to her! she is such a great role model and has changed my life! I VOTED FOR HER AND I THINK YOU SHOULD TOO! SHE SHOULD'VE BEEN NUMBER ONE FROM THE BEGINNING!!!! GOO BIANCA RYANN!!! - musicismylife334

Bianca Ryan is the most incredible child singer I have ever heard. The emotion she imparts to the listener is very very powerful. She knows how to sing
with just the right level of intensity, without going "over the top". And she is a exceptionaly
generous, kind, compassionate and sweet young lady. She is a excellent role model for her generation. No self centered
attitude from her, she is humble. - r5lark

I've listened to Bianca Ryan, and I totally adore her. Her voice is pure, and sounds as if she is much older than she is! In My Head is a beautiful song.

Bianca Ryan is the #1 Chid singer of all times, she can sing songs that Charice couldn't even think about There is no other young singer in the world that I would even listen too - ragdump

5 Connie Talbot Connie Talbot Connie Talbot (born November 20th, 2000) is an English child singer who rose to fame as a finalist on the first season of Britain's Got Talent. She is currently active as an independent music artist on YouTube.

I have never before heard such professional sounding phrasing of a song in such a young singer--beginning when Connie was only six! Go on YouTube and listen to her renditions of Wonderful World, Smile and I Will Always Love You--all from her first album at age six. Her videos now have had over 500 million hits!

Think about her. She is amazing. She has been pitch- prefect since she was 6 years old and went on BGT. She made her debut cd when she was 7 and had already gotten even better. She is amazing and is developing her talent more each day. I think she can make it to be the best, if she is not already!

I love connie she should be number one. She has such and amazing voice that makes you wish you were her. She has her whole future ahead of her and I bet she's going to become a singer. Keep up the good work Connie, and don't give up and listen to all those haters there just jealous. Please make more videos!

CT is Best natural singer. She will put a tear in your eye.

6 Nita Blanc

Nice Showing on Holland's Got Talent 2010 when 13 (dertien jaar oud). Some listeners felt she should have been the winner! "Empire State of Mind II is an excellent cover of Alicia Key's smash hit. She is beginning to be mentioned among singers like Jackie Evancho, Bianca Ryan, Hollie Steel, Rhema Marvanne, and Jotta A! However, the Netherlands does not have the same exposure as do Countries like the U.K. and U.S. A, so she has not been readily noticed by promoters. She has one of the most powerful singing voices in the world! She may also need to produce an original work to gain influence in the music world.

Nita's rendition of Birdy's "Skinny Love, " originally by Bon Iver, demonstrates explosive power and flexible vocal range by a beautiful young singer who is not even close to reaching her true potential; her recordings are done in a simple environment without the enhancements to which a lot of artists have access. The world is waiting for a professional production with enhanced effects; hopefully she will obtain an opportunity to show her full range, complete with vocal undulations, note extentions and tremendous "locks" at the end of her songs!

Her strong voice merits a #4 or #5 ranking in this category. Her singing of a couple of difficult songs and "nailing" them arguably better than the original artists, would qualify her for an even higher ranking. But for now, just being recognized in the top ten without financial-promotional backing; and, as was Jackie Evancho, not selected as the best in a major competition; the rest is up to Nita's fans, supporters and herself!

Top 20 ranking in voice power among female singers... In the top 80 most powerful singing voice in the world... And how young is she? If 13 in 2010, she is still only 15 or 16 in 2012. A comment below indicated COR in Denmark; it might actually have been in Amsterdam... Sorry if I am mistaken... Google "The Most Powerful Singing Voice in the World Nita" and the result may surprise you!

10 Makisig Morales

The Contenders

11 Amy Diamond
12 Kayla Giampaolo

In my opinion, there is nobody on this list quite like Kayla Giampaolo. Her voice is like hearing the whispers of angels. If I had to make a comparison, it would be close to a Whitney Houston or a Mariah Carey. But to be quite honest, Kayla surpasses those voices. Her passion, dedicaton, commitment and love for the art transcends her music. Hearing her sing is an experience I will never forget, and one I hope everyone may have at some point in their life. She is a 15 out of 10. Dab.

13 Rhema Marvanne

Rhema Marvanne sings for God and to feel a connection to her mother's spirit. I love her voice. Her singing helps me through physically painful times.

Rhema sings with emotion and devotion. Although her music themes may not be to the taste of everyone, the quality output is quite elevated.

Rhema is a gospel singers she's amazing when she sings she feels her mother in her soul rhema lost her mother when she was six rhema is thankful for everything she a great singer

Rhema sing's for her mom and for her family and to encourage people... She sing's like a an angel and like a pro

34 Ronan Parke

He does well to say the least. I saw his performances on Britian's Got Talent. I am not sure if he won or not, but if he didn't he should have. He is pitch perfect. He should write his own songs or choose different songs though because he sings Justin Beiber's stuff. It fits his voice well but I am not too much of a fan of Justin's and Ronan is unigue in himself so I believe he is a star.

He is the most fantastic singer I've heard. And he must have the best parents since it hasn't got to his head.

We love you always and Forever ever!

Amazing voice very gifted. I love to listen to him sing!
