The Contenders: Page 4
Jackie's magnificent version of the song from the 1965 Broadway play and 1972 movie production of "Man of La Mancha"
The original by Richard Kiley was amazing, and Raul Julia in the 90's revival was great, and Peter O'Toole was dubbed in the movie [probably for the best] but as old men like Quixote, their versions were more bitter and defiant, while much younger [and of course female] Jackie was more triumphant.

This is also one of her personal favorites to perform in concert.
When Jackie is singing this, I have to listen to the entire song.
Getting to be an audience favorite in her concert repertoire.
So happy that Jackie is branching out more with her styles.V 4 Comments
You would certainly think that Jackie's presentation of this song to the United Nations is exactly what John would have intended.
A cover of John Lennon's masterpiece, performed for the United Nations on 11/20/14, and is a completely different song than the one titled "Imaginer" which was on her DWM album, and is even in French!V 1 Comment
I heard at least 10 different cover versions of this song, and none could compare with Cohen's original, at least until Jackie and Peter completed this work of art.
Leonard Cohen wrote this song, and Jackie teamed up with "Acapella King" Peter Hollens to create the most unique and beautiful cover that has ever been done of this all-time classic.
Jeff Buckley song. Or Leonard Cohen, actually.V 4 Comments
Johnny Mathis and Jackie! What a match that would be. WOW!
From "The Snowman", included on her "Heavenly Christmas" album.
From her album 'Prelude to a Dream'.
Proves that an angelic child may retain her innocence even though unsheltered from and aware of the grim realities of this troubled world - E.g., lethal child abuse in this reality- based Martina McBride song. She smiles at the beginning and end of the video, but looks so sad while singing - "possessed by the music," as she describes it.
Added to Jackie's concert setlist at her sold out Florida tour stop on march 24, 2015.
As far as I can tell, she's never performed this in concert and you could only get it if you bought the deluxe DWM cd from Target. I tripped over it on YouTube but it's one of my very favorites of hers. Look for it on YouTube and see for yourself
Long hidden in the video vault, the video of 9-year old Jackie singing this in Nashville was finally released in 2016. A couple of microphone malfunctions during the performance is the likely reason for not releasing it previously.
Originally on her independent release "Prelude to a Dream", in January of 2016 she sang this backstage during a meet & greet appearance that was being filmed.
Appears on her early independent album "Prelude to a Dream", and also performed backstage atfter her Florida concert in 2016.
A beautiful duet on Placido's 2015 Christmas album; quite an honor for Jackie to have been included in two numbers on it, considering he was one of the famed "Three Tenors", which included Luciano Pavarotti as a member.
