The Top Ten
1 Nella Fantasia - Jackie Evancho

'The Jackie Effect'... haha! I don't think so. Fanatical fans with delusions of grandeur!

In my opinion the most beautiful piece Jackie has ever performed. Check out the YouTube video of her live performance on The View with Sharon Osborne - breathtaking! - BobG

Gives me a chill and makes me weep every time!

The most BORING version I've ever heard!

2 Nessun Dorma - Jackie Evancho Nessun Dorma - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

This isn't a song for a little girl or teenage girl to sing. It requires a full-bodied, robust, mature & experienced MALE OPERATIC VOICE to sing it. She should stick to songs that do her voice justice.

Yes, this is the one that gives me chills every time. Her most astounding rendition of this is from her appearance as a guest on "Britain's Got Talent" found on YouTube. - BobG

Nessun Dorma does it for me.

Her delivery as a 10-12 year old was pitch perfect. This song still meets as world-class, but what would Nessum Dorma sound like he she sang today?

3 Pie Jesu - Jackie Evancho Pie Jesu - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

I remember when I saw and heard this on Americas Got Talent.
I had to sit down. Most amazing performance, unearthly, incredible.

This is probably the BEST of many songs Jackie sings in regards to the Jackie Effect, but a close second (very, very close) has got to be O Mio Babbino Caro from a talent contest when she was around 8 years old.

4 Se - Jackie Evancho Se - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Se is so smooth, the emotions sneak up on you. Just listening and enjoying, then wham!

5 Lovers - Jackie Evancho Lovers - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

The number she opened with at her very first "full" concert; at Houston in February of 2011.
She stunned the audience from the very beginning, and hasn't stopped ever since!

The final line 'your voice still echos in my heart' always affects me.
Her interpretation is spot on.

6 Angel - Jackie Evancho Angel - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Sure looks like an angel. - HezarioSeth

7 I Dreamed a Dream - Susan Boyle I Dreamed a Dream - Susan Boyle Cover Art
8 Mi Mancherai - Jackie Evancho

Have to go all the way back to "Dream With Me - in Concert" for this one. It's just a wave of beautiful vocals that washes over you, combined with the image of Jackie in baroque era costume, taking you to a different time and place." - BobG

This song gives me goosebumps.

9 To Where You Are - Jackie Evancho

When she sang this in her Thousand Oaks concert, I almost had to get up and go stand in the corridor...

When you see a little child watching her on T.V. he isn't looking or listening to her he is still a child and recognizes an angle when when we can't

10 Concrete Angel - Jackie Evancho

A tear-jerker of the first water!

The effect began just at age 8!

From her first CD, "Prelude to a Dream"

The Contenders
11 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Jackie Evancho

Probably the best version of that song that I've ever heard.

I wish the composer of the song would comment

12 The Rains Of Castamere - Jackie Evancho The Rains Of Castamere - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Haunting, spellbinding, enchanting.. another song now owned by Jackie Evancho..

From "Game of Thrones".

Just look at her at this age. she is is a goddess. angels could take lessons from her thanks for the feelings

13 What a Wonderful World - Jackie Evancho What a Wonderful World - Jackie Evancho Cover Art
14 The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel
15 Your Love - Jackie Evancho Your Love - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Like this so much!

16 The Star Spangled Banner - Jackie Evancho

Even though I am not from the USA,
Jackie's version of this makes me feel proud.
She is a master of emotional transference.

17 She Knew - Jackie Evancho

A very early treasure form when Jackie was just 9 years old during a performance in Nashville, and recently re-discovered.

18 Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton
19 Dormi Jesu - Jackie Evancho
20 Say Something - Cheyenne Jackson
21 My Immortal - Jackie Evancho
22 Mad World - Gary Jules Mad World - Gary Jules Cover Art
23 Can You Feel the Love Tonight? - Jackie Evancho Can You Feel the Love Tonight? - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

I can feel the love every time this little songbird opens those golden pipes, and floods the Earth's atmosphere with her intensely beautiful soprano voice. "Oh, what a feeling! "

24 The Music of the Night - Jackie Evancho The Music of the Night - Jackie Evancho Cover Art
25 Teaching Angels How to Fly - Jackie Evancho
