Best Female Music Artists of the 21st Century

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 .

The best voice I have ever heard. Jackies' singing reaches into your soul and touches your heart. She will be one of the best if not the best artist of the 21th century

There is only one Jackie... Nobody else is equivalent, or even close to her within the sphere of artistry that she performs - and she is only 3 months away from 14 years old. Jackie Evancho will define classical singing in the 21st century, to the same extant that Maria Callas defined her genre in the 20th century, and to the same extent that Jenny Lind defined the 19th century.

Jackie is the most up and coming female voice to come along in 30 years, maybe a life time.

Jackie is the Voice of the 21st century. - BobG

Oops, getting sued for plagiarism by Radiohead.

Her songs are really something different. It's a good alternative to all the bad music going around this day and best even is that she doesn't have to dress like a slut, to have the attention she deserves, neither does she need to trash talk about other singers like for instance lorde, giving interviews saying other peoples music are irrelevant.

Keep it that way Lana.
