Best Child Singers of All Time
The Top Ten
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.
Jackie Evancho today still captures the heart and soul of her audiences. When she sings, there is nothing else. - Buggy01
At age 10 she sang with a voice and a style like an adult star singer. Without example. So good that many listeners couldn't believe it. - ohcnave
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.
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.
She has an awesome personality but her songs are a bit boring and she has no particular skills in ukulele but her songs have always a beautiful message
Grace VanderWaal has achieved so much at her age... It's amazing how she is so inventive...
The most unique singing voice in a child ever!
Strictly a Disney-created flavor of the month about 10 years ago. Disney dropped him like a hot potato once he was no longer "cute".
Hell no - 445956
Lead singer of the Jackson 5 at 11 years old, although the J5 never had an album go higher than #4, and his solo album back then "Ben" peaked at #5, but there were some #1 singles. Had his first #1 album, "Thriller" at age 23.
Best singer in my opinion, he is just amazing
We were watching him when he was just a kid.
To the commenter who called him "the man", this particular list is strictly about an artists "child" career; age 15 and under.
One of the saddest, most cautionary tales in Hollywood history.
Over the rainbow..:") - Ananya
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.
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
Platinum album in both US and UK at age 13.
Member of the short-lived but promising group Mindless Behavior, charted a #6 and #7 album before getting fired for stealing the producer's car.
At age 14, had a #1 single in Canada, "Blue", and at age 15, had a Billboard #2 single, "How Do I Live".
She can't sing,she's an another spoiled child who lives in a JoJoPalace
A Superstar in the making.
I like her I just don't like her singing that's all!
I live close to her and shes really mean
I WONDER WHOM ADDED THIS - Puga
Mostly famous for singing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas", in 1953, and in 1954 she actually got one, then immediately donated it to the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Connie is lovely!
Kenzie is such a talented singer and I look up to her. She is so pretty. She is my favorite singer! Vote for kenzie if you ship senzie
I love both Johnny and Mackenzie's songs especially Day and Night and Teamwork
Mackenzie and Johnny are both very talented!
Now this is a singer everyone should listen to and respect. His voice is one that can make you feel happy and confident. - SwagFlicks
Still holds the record for youngest artist in US chart history to have a #1 album, at age 13.
Who added my princess?
At age 14, he joined a local band in Liverpool called the Quarrymen, which was headed up by his older buddies, John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
Never heard of him.
I LOVE ARIANA'S MUSIC! 1
ARI IS THE BEST AND SHE IS BETTER THAN JACKIE(WHO IS JACKIE? )
Youngest female musician to write, produce, and perform a Billboard #1 single, at age 17.
Managed to parlay her childhood stardom into a successful Broadway career.
Her amazing talent was recognized as early as age 3, but due to an abusive mother, did not enter a major music conservatory until age 14.
The Yodeling Kid!? - Ananya
They are the best
Sang " I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus".
How is she not higher, she became a child star overnight and during her time as a child star from 2006-2009, Miley Mania was noted as being the biggest thing since The Beatles
I'm in general not fan of Child Singers, but this one is an exception. I think everyone on this site now knows by now that I'm a huge Psychedelic music fan, so I am so impressed that this man made one of the most unique Psychedelic albums of the 1960s, when he was just 16. The album is a Psychedelic/Ethereal masterpiece. The album is also ahead of it's time, for having a couple of songs, which have an uncanny similarity to Radiohead. Which is amazing, this kid managed to make something which sounds so alike to Radiohead around 30 years before Radiohead even released Ok Computer. The vocal patterns on those songs are also very similar, to Thom Yorke's vocal patterns as well. The rest of the album is also amazing as well great, and very creative Psych Rock is how you describe all of J.K & Co. Suddenly One Summer. It's crazy how he was able to make an amazingly good, and ahead of it's time Psychedelic album at just 16. When I was 16 I was making unfunny Meme Mix Tapes on Soundcloud, the ...more
Had a #4 solo album and #1 single at age 14, a record at the time.
Very beautiful, and based on that, has been the beneficiary of fully-manufactured Disney stardom, complete with professionally written songs and the finest auto-tune equipment money can buy.
Long before she became a worldwide opera star as an adult, she appeared in a 1930's movie, billed as an "8 year old sensation", but in reality was about 11-12 years old.
Record it's my party when she was 16 and it hit number 1 and you don't own me when she was just 17 ( and you know what I mean) she hit number 2 but the beatles over took her number 1 spot - scoopoo
Lead singer of The Boxtops with a #1 hit single "The Letter" at age 16, though he looked older.
Get her off the list! - Ananya
As a child, was more well-known for her great instrumental abilities, although she did sing. Her singing voice really came into its own when she became an adult.
Sickest child singer/rapper ever, he has more talent that Freddy Mercury and Michael Jackson combined. Am I funny now?
Are you serious? I've never heard his songs, but there is NO WAY he is more talented than Freddie Mercury or Michael Jackson were, let alone both of them combined. - allamassal
At just 14 years old he sung 'Tomorrow' for the band 'Silverchair' which went on to become #1 in Australia and a worldwide hit. I thought his singing in the original studio recording was good, but when I heard the band perform the song live at the MTV music video awards in 1995 in New York City, I was completely blown away by the power and passion in his voice, it sounded phenomenally better than the studio version.
I play Pokemon go
First number one at just 17 and another two chart toppers by the time she was 20.
