Best Female Singers of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

Most people, especially younger listeners mistake stage performers as singers. When it comes to singing, Jackie Evancho is by far the real deal. No autotune, no dancer or pyrotechnic distractions, no artificial and manufactured pop star constructs. When you listen to Jackie sing, those goosebumps, shortness of breath, and emotional overload you experience comes from the phenomenal voice and emotion Jackie creates for her audiences. Jackie really is perfection personified.

Not very few have a voice like Jackie. Her crystal clear bell like tone is one for the century!

She the best

She is retarded.

I am her mega fan, the biggest fan of selena. SELENATOR and also a fan of jelena (justin Bieber and selena gomez)

She has been my favourite singer since I was 4. All her songs are inspiring and beautiful. I think she should be number 1. People find her voice and music trash but I don't. She's gorgeous from inside and outside. I would totally vote for her and want others to do that too.
