2 Jackie Evancho
Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age. Since 2009, she has issued an EP and eight albums, including a platinum and gold album, and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's latest album 'The Debut', was her eighth consecutive ...read more.
Jackie is now 15 years old and has been singing professionally since 2010. In that time, she has issued 5 CDs and 3 DVDs of her PBS specials. Her concerts and special event performances have been as numerous as her attendance at her local school permits. She is focused, determined, well-mannered and hugely talented. For pure vocal performance and artistic interpretation, no one can touch her.
Jackie Evancho is a "once a century" singing voice, and at age 14 will only get better.
Many TopTens members hate classical music, which is their choice and also their loss, but as they mature their tastes will evolve.
The poll does not say "most important", "most popular", or "biggest selling", and it does not ask "Who ROCKS the best".
Jackie is not just a singer; she makes a presentation that strikes right to the very soul; feelings, joy, the thrill of hearing the words being presented. An entire choir inside of a 14YO 5 ft. bundle of star stuff.
I am in my 5th year being moved by Jackie's grace, beauty and her beautiful voice and God willing will have another 10 years to follow this amazing young lady.
