This category isn't about career longevity, it's about who has the best voice as a child. Without question it's Jackie Evancho. There has never been anything like her in the music business... ever.

The most breathtakingly beautiful voice I've ever heard from a child. Jackie was a recognized prodigy with an innate understanding of music and natural interpretive skills that gave her the ability to perform in several genres and in foreign languages -Italian, French, Japanese and Latin. She has always performed with authentic emotion and skillful finesse.

Jackie is the youngest Platinum recording artist of all time, she was 10 years old when her first Record Label album went Platinum. She has had 7 consecutive album releases go #1 on the BillBoard Classical Chart.
Jackie just celebrated her 18th Birthday on April 9, 2018.

Yes, Jackie is good. But she still needs to prove herself as an all-time great. Being in the game for 7 years compared to Jackson's 50+, she just needs more experience.

Grace VanderWaal Grace Avery VanderWaal is an American singer-songwriter from Suffern, New York. She is most well-known for winning the eleventh season of "America's Got Talent" singing her original songs at 12 years old. Her album, "Just the Beginning" was released in November 2017, and she has two EPs, "Perfectly ...read more.

She literally sounds like she is on crack and vape and coughing it up. But that's what makes it unique. A voice of its own. She won America's Got Talent and sings very originally.

Grace is obviously much better than Michael Jackson at the same young age. Though MJ was a good dancer, that's not really a musical talent. Grace writes all of her own songs, and they are great, plus she plays an instrument. MJ did not write anything until he was an adult, and never played any instrument.

I Love every song I've heard from her "Just the Beginning" album. I you have not see her redbull ACL fest concert, look it up and you can see why she is #1.

Grace VanderWaal has achieved so much at her age... It's amazing how she is so inventive...

To the commenter who called him "the man", this particular list is strictly about an artists "child" career; age 15 and under.

Grace VanderWaal fans. Man I hate em' just as much as Jackie Evancho's fans. They ruined Anaya's list.

Why do people keep mentioning MJ's adult stardom on this list about CHILD singers.

Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

Helen Shapiro Helen Kate Shapiro is an English pop singer, jazz singer and actress. She is best known for her 1960s UK chart toppers, "You Don't Know" and "Walkin' Back to Happiness".

Never really heard by US audiences, but as a UK star in the early 60's, she once had the Beatles opening for her. They possibly wrote "Misery" for her to sing, but her management rejected it.

Frankie Lymon Franklin Joseph "Frankie" Lymon was an American rock and roll/rhythm and blues singer and songwriter, best known as the boy soprano lead singer of the New York City-based early rock and roll group, The Teenagers.

A very sad, cautionary tale. Nationwide stardom and several top 20 hits at age 15; dead of a heroin overdose at age 25.

One of the top 5 greatest singers in history!

I'm sorry he beats MJ for best child singer
