41 David Bowie David Bowie David Robert Jones was born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. ...read more.

Honestly, David should be in front of Madonna. He basically inspired her. He had such a huge roll in the music industry and is definitely one of the biggest music legends. He taught everyone to be individuals and made amazing music.

Bowie was a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, actor, record-producer, SUPERSTAR! Nobody even compares to this man. He's one in a million and should 100% be #1.

BOWIE! His videos are so strange, yet so inspiring. And his music has cool mixes to them. Bowie is always gonna be a legend, even through death.

Why is he so low on the list!? At least in the top 10, maybe even top 5.

43 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 .

David Foster said when Jackie was 10 he had never in his 45 years in the music business ever seen anything like her. And that she would have a 50,60,70,80 year career. She will prove him right I think. She'd up to 4 years now!

Already the finest singer of her generation, and will be around for the next 50 years or so.

When Jackie lit up the music world at age 10, snooty critics predicted she'd be just another lost child star. Jackie proved them wrong. Five years later, she's working on her sixth album, she has traveled the globe and twice made the list of Billboard's '21 under 21'. David Foster said, "...there's no stopping her, and there is no one else like her." - BobG

At age 15, this legend-in-the-making has five albums and three DVDs of her PBS specials. She has also performed with David Foster, Sumi Jo, Sarah Brightman, The Tenors, Jumaane Smith, Andrea Bocelli and Jose Carreras. She was the youngest to go platinum (at age 10) and has been invited to perform at several prestigious national events. - BobG
