She hardly started yet, wait till she finish school and go full time!

Never seen so much fuss across the spectrum, from pop through crossover to classical and opera.
So much angst, so much worship, so many heated discussions.
This is called 'disruption' and indicates that Jackie Evancho will have a place in the history books.

Jackie Evancho has a beautiful singing voice. All of her albums and live performances are superb.

2 K.S. Chithra K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

K. S. Chithra is a truly amazing singer. She has huge range, power and a beautiful tone to her voice that you can't quite put your finger on. Thats my girl! Greatest young singer to emerge for a long time. Chithra is the best vocalist I have seen from the Asia in a generation.
She has a heartbreakingly beautiful voice.

Chithra is one of the most talented singers to come out of Asia. She can exchange easily from chest voice, to head voice, to the high whistle register flawlessly. You will be hearing about her for years to come.
Chithra is a very special and talented singer who will go far. She so deserved to win the X Factor, although it is an absolute outrage that a girl as talented as Leona was forced to enter it in the first place. "
Chithra has the greatest voice ever!
she is a very great singer.

she's got what it takes to be an ultimate champion.. she is very versatile and the quality of her voice is so magnificent.. not only that.. she embodies all the good qualities of a true youth model.. family oriented, God-fearing and she loves her work and is dedicated to her craft.. most of all, she's remained humble despite all the blessings she's been given.. beautiful!

Chithra deserves 2 be d greatest singer of all time bcoz she has the GOD given talent and has the voice that stands out and can best other contemporaries

she is the most beautiful and fashionable singer I have ever seen...
she deserves 2 be at the top
really the ultimate champion..

Chithra is by far the best artist there has ever been. The lady was musically gifted from writing songs to making the audience feel a mixture of emotions all in a single note of her voice. A good artist doesn't just project a song through his/her mouth, but projects it in such a way that the audience will feel like it is them the song was written for. Real artists also use the resources they have to invent a song which captures a person's heart. Chithra was able to do all of this. After witnessing one of Queen's concerts, you know that your life will never be the same again. Once you hear a her song you, she will always stay in your system for as long as you live.

What the height she achieved? She deserve it she rocks for ever for every song. Chithra has proved her voice she is the great
