Far beyond any voice ever recorded.
Vocalise Op.34 No.14, by Sergei Rachmaninoff, 1915. Written for soprano or tenor.
Amazing. Jackie was just on the cusp of 13/14 years of age when she tackled this difficult work. It's otherworldly and beautiful. - BobGV 1 Comment
Her performance of this song as a guest on Britain's Got Talent was the most amazing that I've ever seen or heard. - BobG
Like no other... Jackie Evancho singing Nessun Dorma is un-believable, but real... Even the master has to kneel to Jackie singing this song...
A great achievement!
Jackie Evancho brought classical music back into my life.
Now performing it again in concert with David Foster, and on her own tour �� - TrancasV 1 Comment
Jackie first sang this at the age of 11. Now age 15, she has performed it at nearly every concert she has done. Obviously she likes it; I think it's one of her greatest songs. - BobG
This is the song that got everyone's attention at her first performance on America's Got Talent. Since then, many talent show hopefuls have given it a try, but none of them comes close to Jackie on this song. - BobG
