There is only one, and there may never be another singer as gifted as Jackie. She is incredible, and keeps getting better with every performance. An absolutely stunning vocalist with a surreal stage presence to match. Jackie is what people used to call a "classic beauty."
No other singer I have heard sings like Jackie Evancho, everything is just right to say what the music is trying to say.
Just something about her voice makes me stop everything I'm doing to listen. Absolutely fantastic. - BobG
Watch her sing her new pop video "Go Time" on her official YouTube channel, and watch/listen to her shift gears to Broadway/classical with the sample of "Think Of Me" (from Phantom of the Opera) at the end. Then look for the video of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" at Cirque du Soleil's One Night for ONE DROP the recording of her French jazz vocal of "La Vie En Rose" on Jumaane Smith's "I Only Have Eyes For You" album, followed by "Pure Imagination" from her "Songs From The Silver Screen" album. Then make a stop at either "Lovers", or "Nessum Dorma" from Dream With Me - In Concert. Then look for her singing the Star Spangled Banner a-capella. She can sing anything - and sing it like no one else. - Trancas
